Daybreak’s loss is Ashes of Creation’s gain. Again.
Intrepid Studio’s habit of roping in former developers from SOE and Daybreak continues, as former H1Z1: Just Survive technical director Mitch Evans announced that he is joining the Ashes of Creation team as a senior gameplay engineer.
“I’ve accepted a position at Intrepid Studios, Inc., starting early February 2019. I had a long run with SOE/Daybreak, and am extremely proud of the games I worked on there over the past 12 years,” said Evans on December 29th.
Just Survive was sunsetted while in beta back in October of last year. Daybreak has since been whittling down its studio size, most notably with a large round of layoffs for its Austin studio in early December.
