Daybreak Game Company president John Smedley took to Twitter last night to proclaim that 1 million copies of the studio's zombie survival game H1Z1 have been sold since it launched on Steam's Early Access service in January.
The company formerly known as Sony Online Entertainment could probably use a bit of good fortune, having last month suffered sweeping layoffs in the wake of being sold to Columbus Nova and rebranding itself as the multi-platform studio Daybreak.
Speaking to Gamasutra in January, Smedley seemed enthusiastic about selling H1Z1 on Early Access ahead of its expected console debut.
"Steam is a great platform to do that because the userbase they’ve built around Early Access has really metastatized," said the Daybreak chief. "I think it’s actually a great path for developers to take."
