DayZ creator, Dean “Rocket” Hall, talks about the possibility of posting DayZ over to consoles.
“I think all the console manufacturers are interested in DayZ, and rightly so because we’ve sold a fair amount of units in a short space of time and it’s a game that could potentially transfer quite well to consoles,” Hall told GameReactor.
In fact, the standalone version of DayZ sold 1 million early access copies within four weeks.
“The consoles are trying to sort of break new ground with where they’re heading,” he added. Hall goes on to draw another Minecraft comparison, a game that made the transition to consoles smoothly. “Because I’m sure there’s a lot of console gamers out there who they would have loved to be a part of say Minecraft when it first came out, and things like that.”
“So really the bottleneck is us. We need to get the PC build to the right state, where then it can pull across, and I think everybody recognises that there’s no sense in starting to pull something across that’s dramatically changing all the time. So really our focus is on delivering the right stuff and answering all the questions as we go through the Early Access with the PC.”
