Just Survive, Formerly the PvE Half of H1Z1, Being Retired Due to Lack of Population

By Suzie Ford on August 24, 2018 | News | 0

Daybreak Game Studio has posted a brief note on the Just Survive site to let its players know that the game will be retired on Wednesday, October 24th. The note says, "The excitement of the game's promise was palpable and its loyal community is still full of ideas for its future. Unfortunately, we are no longer in a position to fulfill its greatness and the current population of the game makes it untenable to sustain". 

Just Survive is the PvE / survival component of H1Z1 that retained that focus after the original game split into two separate titles. H1Z1 battle royale remains alive and well on both PC and consoles.

The rest of the notice reads:

Just Survive was part of our first Early Access project, and we learned a great deal during its development. As with any open world game, the greatest stories came from our passionate players. From the incredibly skilled base builders to the free-ranging gangs, and all of the players named variations of “ImFriendly” and “PleaseDontShootMe”, we hope everyone had amazing adventures across Pleasant Valley and Badwater Canyon.

Thank you for taking the time to play the game, to help test it when we opened the Test servers to the public, and for all of the suggestions and feedback throughout Early Access. We truly appreciate everyone’s commitment and your contributions throughout the development process. Our promise is to do better and learn from every experience along the way.

Just Survive servers will remain available for play until Wednesday, October 24 at 11 a.m. PT, and starting immediately all Steam purchases and in-game transactions have been disabled
