Rough news out of San Diego yesterday – Daybreak Games, developer of the battle royale title H1Z1, went through a round of layoffs. The studio itself has not yet confirmed how many people were let go, but one source on social media who was among those affected posted that the number significant. Interestingly, the studio still has 30 jobs in San Diego posted on their site right now. That might just be an oversight that got lost in the shuffle during yesterday’s events – we’ll watch to see if that number changes in the coming days.
Developers from other studios have quickly taken to Twitter to share leads on other jobs. The hashtag #DaybreakJobs has gained lots of traction since the news broke.
If you were among those impacted by the layoffs, best of luck in your job search.
