DayZ creator Dean Hall has said a console release for the zombie-based title could come into fruition, but the game's forthcoming standalone PC version must be a success first.
The zombie Arma II mod was recently confirmed to be receiving a standalone release, leading many to speculate whether it could arrive on consoles. Hall state that if, for example, the standalone PC release achieved two million sales then he'd "start to look at things like that [a console version] being quite achievable".
He added that due to ArmA already having a background regarding being available on the Xbox 360, console versions are "definitely a possibility." That said, Hall is predominately focused on the PC version of DayZ.
"I think it's a staged-approach thing, so we're really in the experimentation phase of it and that's what the PC is really awesome for to experiment with it and we get the experience good and then if the sales are good then that means the demand is there and we look at what's out there."
DayZ's mod release has already seen over one million registered players, with the game receiving a universal positive critical reception since its launch.
