The early access alpha release of DayZ has sold 800,000 copies in under one month, creator Dean Hall has revealed.
“We (Bohemia and I) had very ambitious plans for 2014 already, however this amount of sales was completely unexpected,” Hall wrote on Reddit. “Honestly, 250k within a quarter was what I would have considered a success. So to move nearly 800,000 in under a month is crazy.
“We’ll be finalizing our roadmap in mid January, but it is safe to say that this kind of result will be having a very positive effect on that roadmap.”
Last week Bohemia Interactive revealed that the alpha had sold 400,000 copies in just one week, with 40,000 concurrent users playing at one point. Future planned updates for the alpha include more zombies, respawning zombies and loot, animals and hunting, additional security, cooking, and resource gathering.
The developer doesn’t expect DayZ to reach a stable beta release with all features implemented for at least another year.
