Dean “Rocket” Hall of DayZ fame has mentioned a console release for his zombie apocalypse baby before, and now that work is progressing on the stand-alone game, he’s even more certain.
“I personally think that, assuming we don’t majorly screw up, once the PC development has stabilized and sales have been good – a console port would be very likely,” he told Joystiq. “So, do I think a console port will happen? Yes. But not until the PC is done. And by ‘done,’ I mean finished its creative process.”
What about the stand-alone version, originally slated to release this month? “We really don’t know, it’s still our target,” said Hall. “But the architectural changes are scheduled to be complete next week. These are still on track to be completed then. But we don’t entirely know what effect these changes will have, if any, on everything else. So there could be a massive amount of unforeseen work that comes out, we just don’t know until it’s done and we test.”
“The changes we’ve been making are so fundamental to the game that estimates can be a bit of a stab in the dark.”
