In December of last year, Daybreak announced its next big PlanetSide venture: a massive-scale battle royale game called PlanetSide Arena with tie-ins to the PlanetSide 2 MMO. The buy-to-play title was meant to hit early access in January. Then it was delayed to March. And then in March, it was delayed to “summer” and the studio refunded pre-orders, which many gamers thought spelled the end of the game (or at least its buy-to-play ambitions). And then… nothing. We haven’t heard a peep from Daybreak about the game in six months.
That’s changed as of today, as the game’s official Twitter crackled back to life this afternoon for the first time since March with this cryptic tweet and the teeny-tiniest of videos:
