DayZ standalone could come to consoles if project lead has his way
Remember how we recently reported that DayZ, the popular, zombie-infested mod of ArmA II, would be developed into a standalone game. Well, if things go project lead Dean Hall's way, we'll be getting that game on consoles someday.
Speaking to Joystiq at Gamescom, Hall said that he "really hopes" that the game is really successful, as the only thing that could get in the way of DayZ getting a console version is if the version being developed for PC isn't successful enough to warrant expansion to other systems.
"You're not going to put it on the consoles if you're only going to sell 100,000 units or something like that," he said. "DayZ will be driven by its PC development and it will innovative on that. And, once we're at a point, we'll take it and do a Mac version, 360 and PS3."
When asked if he had met with any console developers, Hall answered, "We're meeting with them here."
While Hall may be meeting with other developers, both he and the DayZ game's developer, Bohemia Interactive, have worked with consoles before. Having served as a producer on such games in the past, Hall knows "the pitfalls and horror that's involved with it."
