Gamescom 2014: DayZ Is Coming To PS4

The immensely popular DayZ is coming to PS4.  Game Director Dean Hall took Sony’s Gamescom 2014 press conference stage to confirm that DayZ will launch as a console exclusive on PS4.  He revealed that he and his team have worked hard to bring the entire game to the platform without sacrificing what made the PC game great.  He also announced that bringing the game to the PS4 has given his team further cause to continue to expand the game on PC alongside PS4.

DayZ originally started its life as a mod for ARMA II and quickly became popular.  Seeing potential, Bohemia Interactive hired Dean Hall to develop a standalone version of the game, which released on Steam Early Access back in December 2013.  It only took one month for the game to sell 1 million units.  As of May 2014, the game has surpassed 2 million units sold, a remarkable achievement for a game on Steam Early Access.

Neither Sony or Bohemia Interactive have announced a release date for PS4, and no footage was shown at the press conference.
