DayZ will not be a PS4 exclusive, says creator

Admist the whole Rise of the Tomb Raider fiasco, Dean Hall takes to Twitter to assure fans that DayZ won't be a PS4 exclusive.

DayZ will not be an exclusive to PlayStation 4, its creator has confirmed.

It was announced on Tuesday that the popular PC indie title would be coming to the PlayStation 4 but its creator, Dean Hall, took to Twitter to assure fans that the title wouldn’t be exclusive.

Replying to a fan who tweeted that exclusives in 2014 make no sense and are anti-consumer, following the whole Rise of the Tomb Raider fiasco, Hall replied saying he agreed.

“I agree,” he wrote. “DayZ is not an exclusive on any platform”.

Originally launching as a MOD for ARMA 2, DayZ launched as a standalone title in December 2013 due to popular demand.

It has since become one of the most popular titles, hosting over 1.5 million players, selling over 2 million units in less that 6 months since launch, and becoming the most talk about game, overcoming the launches of PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and FIFA 14.

Hall announced back in February that he was leaving Bohemia Interactive, the studio behind the title.

A release window for DayZ on PlayStation 4 has not been officially announced.
