A Steam Database entry for popular Arma II mod turned upcoming commercial release DayZ has been uncovered, and it appears the title could be mere days away from publicly launching.
The Escapist first pointed to the listing, which indicates the game will initially release on Valve’s distribution platform as an Early Access title.
The listing also categorized the entry as available,” though there’s no sign of the commercial release in any form on Steam as of yet.
Creator Dean Hall has since responded to the entry, telling Joystiq the team has made good progress on the game – but stopped short of confirming anything to do with the database entry.
"Amazing how quickly the internet picks up on things isn’t it," Hall said.
"All I can say is that progress has been very good, we’re a mix of nervous and excited. And as I’d stated on my Twitter when I announced my break from social media/updates, we are on the final lap. Part of the final process involves the actual administration of the release, which is actually surprisingly complex and time-consuming.
"So, to confirm, there is no release date announcement and we’re 100 percent focused on getting the alpha out the door.”
