DayZ: Arma 2 Zombie-Mod Will Get Standalone Retail Release – Dev
DayZ could be the Zombie game of the year if recent praise for the Arma 2 mod is on the money, and with the military shooter’s creator Bohemia Interactive noting a 300,000 sales bump following the mod’s reelase, it won’t be the last we see of DayZ.
A retail version has been speculated (Counter-Strike proves what can be achieved), but now appears to be semi-official according to DayZ creator Dean Hall. “I think that’s a certainty,” he told BeefJack. “Either someone else or myself will do it.”
Don’t hold your breath for the game just yet though. “It’s proven it’s got legs, it’s incredibly able to make a heap of money, so I think yep, it’s a certainty. It’s just a question of when and by who,” Hall added.
The DayZ modder works as a designer on Arma full-time, so given it’s retail potential, Bohemia could get him to work on a retail version of DayZ instead of Arma 3. Do you want to see DayZ on console? Let us know.
