H1Z1 had been left in limbo, however then in Might, Dawn registered Wandering Monster Games, which could have one thing to do with the zombie apocalypse battle royale franchise, although there’s no affirmation on that but.

Let’s do extra! Theory Forge’s Scott Anderson observed that Dawn has in the previous few weeks filed emblems for one thing referred to as Chilly Iron too. His take – and he’s usually proper – is that it’s for a brand new IP or new sport content material; it could possibly be the key sport being labored on by Dimensional Ink.

As far as we are able to inform, it’s still a going concern, so we doubt they’re associated, but when the title “Chilly Iron” tickled a reminiscence, that’s most likely why. [Edit: MOP reader fatherteachergamer points out that the logos are the same too, so maybe it’s more than a coincidence. We’ll wait and see.]
