Indie PC hit Day Z is officially being developed into a standalone tite.
Arma II creators Bohemia Interactive are funding the venture, though Day Z creator Dean Hall has been hired as project lead.
“This is the fairy-tale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago,” Hall stated.
“Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so. The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price.
“I realize people will have many, many questions - but we wanted to let everyone know the announcement now. Over the coming weeks, these questions will be answered. The game will have it’s own site, www.dayzgame.com and the mod will continue at it’s present link.”
