Daybreak Games has stated that it has laid off staff as it looks to restructure. While the company itself didn’t confirm how many people were let go former studio boss John Smedley wrote on Twitter that 70 people had been fired, estimating that this made up 30% of the Daybreak’s staff.
I can't say exactly but rough guess is about 30%

This isn’t the first time Daybreak has laid off staff this year, as it did the same several months ago again citing the reason to better position the company. Daybreak Games is behind titles such as H1Z1 Battle Royale, Planetside 2, Everquest, and DC Universe Online. It’ll remain unclear how the loss of a large chunk of staff will affect the current titles, as well as any other games that may be in production at the studio.
