President Of Daybreak Game Company Announces H1Z1 Has Sold 1 Million Copies On Steam

President of Daybreak Game Company John Smedley has been very active on Twitter in order to keep H1Z1 players in the know about various things happening with the game and its servers. Today, Smedley took to the social media site to share news that the zombie MMO has sold 1 million digital copies on Steam since launching on January 15.

Smedley was also active in commenting on the status of the Australian servers, which went live today. In addition, the president of the studio announced that Daybreak banned over 5,000 cheaters from the game.

H1Z1 currently sits in the top 20 of Steam's top sellers, sandwiched between the BioShock Triple Pack and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel + Season Pass. Sony sold Sony Online Entertainment in February of this year, prompting the name change to Daybreak Game Company. Despite that, H1Z1 is still scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, but no timing has been announced. (Correction: Daybreak reached out to clarify that H1Z1 has been announced for PlayStation 4, but no timing has been specififed. We apologize for the error and confusion.)

Our Take
That's a big milestone for the zombie survival MMO. If the success of H1Z1 on Steam is any indication, it could prove to be a big hit on PlayStation 4 when it launches later this year.
