In 2006, they signed a deal with LucasArts to develop the science fiction video game Fracture. It had mixed reviews by the gaming press. In 2010, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that they would be developing the third installment in the F.E.A.R. franchise entitled F.E.A.R. 3, first announced using the title F.3.A.R., which was later confirmed as just for advertising. When their subsequent project with Konami was cancelled, however, around 100 employees (the vast majority of the team working on that project) were laid off. The remaining team members moved forward with development on the free-to-play mech game Reign of Thunder.
On January 29, 2013 it was announced that Wargaming.net, the creator of World of Tanks, acquired Day 1 Studios for $20 million and rebranded it Wargaming West. The acquisition included the rights to Reign of Thunder, the status of which is currently under consideration.
