How is Daybreak Studios doing? Is H1Z1 keeping them afloat? Just when you thought things were turning around for Daybreak Studios thanks to the big support H1Z1 has gotten from its PC port, more layoffs have hit the studio. However, in a statement released to Gamasutra, Daybreak is claiming that the layoffs are supposed to a step to "optimize" the structure of the studio: "We are optimising our structure to ensure we best position ourselves for continued success in the years to come. This effort has required us to make some changes within the organisation and we are doing everything we can to support those impacted in this difficult time. "As we look to improve efficiencies and realign resources, we remain focused on supporting our existing games and development of our future titles."
