Console owners rejoice as DayZ creator Dean Hall has stated that a port from the PC is almost a certainty if all goes well.
“Certainly I think if we don’t, for want of a better word ‘f**k 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.”
Currently there is no console version in development, but Hall hinted at the PlayStation 4 being the most likely choice for a console release.
“It appears to be the kind of game that Sony are interested in. I think we just have to wait and see,” he said. “We’ve talked and met with Sony, and they’re very – you know, they’re obviously interested.”
A console port would give a serious boost to the game’s already massive fanbase, but it would have to be a next-gen release to do it justice–I doubt that current-gen consoles would have enough power to support the game efficiently.
