In what seemed like an increasingly inevitable move, popular zombie survival mod DayZ is becoming its own game, creator Dean Hall announced today on the game's blog.
Moreover, ArmA developer Bohemia Interactive will actually be partnering with Hall to create the game. Hall will server as the project lead on this more ambitious take on DayZ.
“This is the fairy-tale outcome for a mod that many would have said impossible four months ago,” said Hall.
Development on the mod will continue, as well. Hall said the big questions about how this splintering will impact each project will be answered in the coming weeks.
The official website for the new game is www.dayzgame.com.
