H1Z1 goes Pro

Daybreak Games is teaming up with Twin Galaxies to launch the H1Z1 Pro League with a mission to “operate with integrity and dedication to players and teams to establish a sustainable ecosystem” by focusing on a “player-first” approach to create a sustainable, first of its kind, professional esports league for the battle royale genre. Participants will receive a Player Bill of Rights that includes minimum compensation (reportedly at least $50,000), revenue sharing, player agreement standards and a governance committee. Teams competing in the Pro League will be announced in early 2018 with the first season starting in the second quarter. Teams interested in learning more can attend a private H1Z1 Pro League briefing taking place at TwitchCon 2017 on Oct. 20.
