In a recent interview with Eurogamer, PlayStation Producer Terrence Yee said that H1Z1‘s player count on the PS4 has “surpassed what any of us could have imagined.” Response to the game’s open beta alone was “beyond wildest expectations” for Daybreak.
Yee also admitted that the absence of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Sony’s system may have helped H1Z1. However, Epic’s hit Fortnite has a strong player on the PS4 so there isn’t a total lack of competition.
