Daybreak Game Company on H1Z1 banning blitz

24,837 players have been banned for cheating, says president

The president of Daybreak Game Company has revealed the studio has banned over 24,837 cheating players over the weekend from its online zombie game H1Z1.

Smedley made particular mention of the TMCheats site which offers aimbots, speed hacks and teleporting, calling them cockroaches.

He also took the unusual step of inviting those cheaters who have been banned to make public YouTube apologies.

The game was released on Steam as an early access title on January 15 and by 24 March had sold over a million copies.
