If you are a big fan of killing zombies, there hasn’t been much titles of the sorts released on the PlayStation 4 thus far. Dean Hall, the creator of DayZ might be looking to change this trend a bit, in an interview with Gamereactor he has been having extensive talks about moving the game over to consoles. It is possible that the game may see the light of day on the PlayStation 4 at some point:
“We’d certainly consider release on any feasible platform with a realistic publishing model,” said Hall, in an interview with Gamereactor. “It seems like currently both of the next-gen consoles should provide an environment we can develop inside.”
Don’t get your hopes up too high just yet though, as it is way too early into this development to know if we will actually see the game on the PS4. Hall himself said that it is still “too early to say at this point” whether we will see DayZ on either console yet. But hope is still better than nothing.
“The next-gen consoles show very exciting promise. I’m hopeful that they can deliver on that. An important part of that, from my perspective, is encouraging and supporting third-party creative development to bring the “edginess” of PC creative development into the console. I think if the role of Kinect/voice expands to where it is desired it could do some awesome things,” Hall said.
If you are one of the few people who have yet to hear about DayZ, and are questioning the potency of the game then check out these numbers: 200,000 gamers spent $30 for early access to the game within the first 24 hours of release. In 3 weeks the game had jumped up to 875,000 users; within the month the game had over a million gamers playing, this is paying for a game that is still a work in progress.
