DayZ: 'A console port is almost certain,' says creator

So long as the standalone PC game is a success, according to Dead Hall

If the standalone PC version of DayZ turns out to be a success, a console version is "almost certain", says creator Dean Hall.

"Certainly I think if we don't, for want of a better word 'fuck up,' the PC release then I would say a console port is almost certain," Hall told The Escapist.

"I know a lot of people get really hot and bothered about it. Like, I'm not a console gamer, I'm a PC gamer, but I don't think it necessarily has to hurt things," he added.

While he noted that there is currently no console version in the works, Hall indicated that the next-generation PlayStation 4 would be the game's most likely console platform.

"It appears to be the kind of game that Sony are interested in," said Hall. "I think we just have to wait and see," he added, before admitting, "We've talked and met with Sony, and they're very - you know, they're obviously interested."

Hall and his production assistant Matt Lightfoot released the first video blog for DayZ back in February, showing off some of the differences between the standalone title and the original Arma2 mod.
