Daybreak Hit by More Layoffs, Including Planetside Arena Team

Daybreak Game Company has laid off a number of employees, according to various reports.

While actual numbers aren’t confirmed, the employees affected were on the recently launched Planetside Arena team, as well as the H1Z1 team.

“We are taking steps to improve our business and to support our long-term vision for the existing franchises and development of new games,” Daybreak Games said in a statement to Gamasutra.

They added, “This will include a realignment of the company into separate franchise teams, which will allow us to highlight their expertise, better showcase the games they work on, and ultimately provide tailored experiences for our players. Unfortunately, some employees were impacted by this effort, and we’re doing what we can to support them during this challenging time.”

Previously, Daybreak had let go a large number of employees last year, in both April and December.
