Day Z developer confirms standalone version is in development

Posted on August 7, 2012 - 3:00pm by Sean Hinz

Day Z has become the ultimate simulation of a zombie apocalypse, but it still isn’t its own game, it is a mod of ARMA II. But thanks to the studio behind ARMA II, that is no longer the case, as it has been revealed that Day Z will become its own game. Rocket, leader of the Day Z team, has been pulled into Bohemia Interactive and will become the game’s project lead.

“Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so. The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price.”

With over 1 million players already playing the mod, expect more developments on the mod itself as the game begins to evolve. Tune into the new official site for Day Z here, on Twitter here, or check out ScrewAttack for more updates.
