It’s actually happening. DayZ is officially being made into a standalone game!
According to a post made by Rocket on the DayZ Developer Tumblr blog, the game will be made by Bohemia Interactive with him as the project lead. The team is extremely excited and although the post doesn’t give a whole lot of information there are a few details.
First: the updates for the mod will be done in tandem with the development of the stand-alone game…so current mod players won’t be left out in the cold. Second: Rocket stated the project will follow the Minecraft model…players will be able to purchase the game while in alpha at a discount.
