Remember when Daybreak changed H1Z1’s name yet again, presumably to distance the title’s console version from the already floundering PC version (also known as Z1 Battle Royale, also known at one point as a game with zombies in it)? While we don’t have exact player numbers on console, based on the rewards offered for the sixth season’s reward track as noted by MMO Fallout, the console version is no longer making enough bank to justify much investment.
In short, the free reward track will already cost you $2.50 if you want to actually open the crates you were rewarded (readers capable of doing math will note that “costs $2.50” is literally the opposite of “free”). You can purchase all of the premium and free reward track for $20 to be rewarded with items that are not worth $20. And the season patch contains no bug fixes or improvements, either. Meanwhile, over on the PC side of things… well, it’s not better, as average player counts continue falling.
