H1Z1 unveils new logo, drops King of the Kill subtitle.

Posted on 14/10/2017 at 3:00AM UTC

A new update to the H1Z1 Test Server includes a new main menu UI with a new logo, here are some screenshots of the different variations of the first splash screen.

This is what the new main menu looks like too.


Here is what Daybreak had to say about the reasons for the changes:

So why the change…again? Throughout development we’ve continued to define the vision for H1Z1, which is competitive at its core with fast-paced and action-packed combat. Over the past year, the game has grown by leaps and bounds in terms of both player base and development, so we thought it was time to evolve the game’s look to something that better represented the spirit of H1Z1 and the level of quality we aspire to. H1Z1 is also the name that our players connect with most, so it was just natural evolution for us to transition back. We're also working to ensure that H1Z1 can be enjoyed by players around the world, and having the word 'Kill' in the name of the game can be limiting with some global audiences.

Also from the game files are some other screens and artwork of interest.


Even more interesting is the variations of this artwork with a Chinese logo...

Daybreak confirms Russell Shanks departure

Posted on 06/12/2016 at 12:00PM UTC

Last week there were some rumors (via The Ancient Gaming Noob) that Russell Shanks who took over the position of President when John Smedley stepped down in July 2015 had left the company in October, the rumor originated from a change in Shanks LinkedIn profile.

On Monday it was confirmed by Daybreak (via MMORPG.com) to be tue and that Ji Ham of Columbus Nova the investment firm that purchased Daybreak (formerly Sony Online Entertainment) who has been listed as the co-President of the company since July 2015 will continue as acting president.

Daybreak Games confirms that Russ Shanks has recently stepped down from his position at Daybreak to pursue other interests. Ji Ham will continue as acting president of the company.

What does all this mean for H1Z1 and their other games? Well, probably nothing at all...
