DayZ News: Rocket wants to put DayZ on consoles!

Posted 18 Aug 2012 in DayZ News



How many friends have you told about DayZ that don’t have a computer to play it on? Well, if they have a PS3 or an XBOX, they may be in luck.

Dean ‘Rocket’ Hall, the creator of our beloved Zombie mod, recently revealed that DayZ will become its own game, but that’s not all! He now says that hes has been in talks with console developers at GamesCom 2012, with plans on making a version of the game for consoles! Thats right, soon you may be able to run through Chernogorsk and Elektrozavodsk using your favorite controller.

    My XBOX 360 says feed me with a DayZ disc. I hope the game can be supported through multiple platforms. Of course the computer players would have an advantage.

    I hope the console versions won’t be too different, I can live without a large player count, but 24 or 32 players would be nice. Let’s just hope they can optimize it on PC first, because if my memory isn’t failing me right now, games that are optimized on PC normally perform better on consoles.
    Please contact me on the DayZ Wiki if you’d like to discuss this further.

    Well if it was on a console I could see ALOT of people playing it. It could even surpass Minecraft! (I love minecraft but come on Zombies! and Guns!)

      I would definitely play DayZ on my PC and XBOX 360! This way, I can play with my PC friends and my XBOX Live friends.

      Cuz the PC platform (Windows NT kernel + DirectX) are the same between PC and XBOX. So porting is very easy.

      Both are made by Microsoft, so no mystery.
