Det har lenge vært stille rundt konsollversjonene, og i det hele tatt kan DayZ beskrives som et slags evighetsprosjekt. Nå forsikrer imidlertid utviklerne hos Bohemia Interactive at ingen av konsollversjonene er døde, men at de først skal ferdigstille PC-utgaven. Denne er nemlig fremdeles i Early Access:
- The PC is our flagship platform for DayZ. That is where 99 per cent of our development resources are focused. And while there was a lot of push from Sony and Microsoft to get up on their stages and say 'yes, we're coming', our focus has been exclusively (I want to say exclusively because there's about a one per cent development resource trying to keep those platforms at a point at which, once we get to our beta and our bug fixing, we can start pushing forward on that) on the PC. We can't really move DayZ over to these platforms, at least on a playable level for consumers, until the base engine, Enfusion, is complete. Or if not complete, feature-complete so to speak - the core tech is there, kommenterer Bohemia til Eurogamer.
Når spillet skal over til konsoll vil det derfor først komme til Preview-programmet til Xbox One:
- Once we get to a point with the PC that we're comfortable and we can start dedicating a little resources into catching up those [console] platforms then we'll look at doing some announcements and talk about the Xbox Game Preview programme, which is what I would imagine is the first place we'll get to since Sony doesn't have something similar.
Avslutningsvis sier utvikleren at de ønsker å nå betafasen i år, men de kan ikke gi noen garantier for dette:
- We haven't committed to a physical date yet. We did release a press release saying that our goal was to hit beta in 2016, and release in 2017. Now it remains to be seen if that's the case; it's a goal we've continued to work for since we set it but ... it's very difficult to predict what is going to break and how severe the change is going to be when we're moving these massive new engine changes in. It's like taking the spine out of a game and putting a new one in: you can't be 100 per cent sure if the immune system is going to reject it initially.
Totalt sett kan vi altså regne med enda mer venting fremover, i hvert fall hvis man foretrekker å spille på konsoll.
