NantG continues negotiations with Daybreak to resurrect H1Z1’s Just Survive

The future of H1Z1’s zombie survival component Just Survive has been in limbo for some time now, ever since a joint venture with Daybreak Games granted NantWorks — under the umbrella of NantG Mobile — responsibility for the title’s future. The problem, as NantG dev CastoroGamer points out in a new update on Just Survive’s status, is that NantG has the rights only to Z1 Battle Royale (the PC version of the game) and not to Just Survive. (Daybreak also retained the PS4 version still known as H1Z1).

However, since last October, NantG has been “working on a deal with Daybreak to incorporate Just Survive into Z1 Battle Royale,” which includes “negotiating the rights to re-incorporate the code, assets, gameplay & historical player data into Z1 Battle Royale, not as a stand-alone game.”

There doesn’t seem to be much in the way of additional news, however: The negotiations between NantG and Daybreak are still ongoing, and although the Z1 Battle Royale devs hope that they’ll reach a conclusion in the near future, they say that until then, “there’s not a lot that [they] can share.” The update does note, however, that “The success of [Z1 Battle Royale’s] March 6th update will be pivotal in reuniting Just Survive with Z1 Battle Royale.”

Pity that game never went anywhere. There’s still a sandbox multiplayer/mmo zombie survival game niche waiting to be filled.

Currently there are a few contenders like 7 Days to Die, which I enjoy, but none are past beta quality and certainly not anywhere near AAA polish.

…what? Given how confused they got with a simple acquisition, leading to 3 years of not knowing who actually owned them, is this kind of more “complicated” relationship really a smart move on their part?

Would be cool if it spun back up and got some support for an actual launch, but I don’t have high hopes for that.

Does not deserve to ‘Just Survive’. Let it die, already.

I hope they do get the rights to it. It was the half of the game I actually enjoyed and was very much neglected.

Yeah I actually liked it in the beginning.
