Rumor has it, DayZ might be coming to the Xbox One. The Creator of DayZ, spoke “extensively with Microsoft” about its Xbox One hardware and that the game might be coming out for the console.
It is not confirmed, whether or not, the game is coming out for the Xbox One, but in an interview. Dean Hall was asked what he thought about the next-gen consoles. He said, ” We’d certainly consider release on any feasible platform with a realistic publishing model, it seems like currently both of the next-gen consoles should provide an environment we can develop inside.”
It was pretty clear that Dean Hall prefers the PC over any console out there. “I personally feel the new consoles have yet to prove themselves able to rival the PC experience, however I feel there is the potential from both.”
He added, “I’ve not personally had the opportunity to view the full details of the PS4 whereas I have had the opportunity to talk extensively with Microsoft. The next-gen consoles show very exciting promise. I’m hopeful that they can deliver on that.
“An important part of that, from my perspective, is encouraging and supporting third-party creative development to bring the ‘edginess’ of PC creative development into the console. I think if the role of Kinect/voice expands to where it is desired it could do some awesome things. I just think it’s too early to say at this point.”
So a console version of DayZ hasn’t been confirmed yet. But he has been talking to Microsoft, so we can’t completely rule it out. Personally, I would love to see DayZ on the consoles.
