Day Z to become standalone product

According to a post on the official Day Z Tumblr, the creator of the game is planning to work with the developers of ARMA 2 to develop the smash hit mod Day Z into a standalone product.

“Development and updates of the mod will continue in parallel with the development of the game, so anyone who is playing the mod now will be able to continue to do so," creator Dean "Rocket" Hall wrote in a post on the site. "The project will follow the Minecraft development model; fast iterations with the community alpha available for a heavily discounted price."

The game wont be developed by a lone wolf developer this time though. Hall will be serving as project lead on a Day Z team at Bohemia Interactive who will also be publishing the game. We're positively giddy about the thought of what this guy will be able to do with a full team of professional developers at his disposal.

Day Z recently made headlines by hitting the impressive one million player landmark, and expanding at a ridiculous fast pace. They've added more than 500,000 players in the past month alone.

    I need this...badly. Also, would I be able to say play this game and still be able to interact with friends or other players that are playing on the original mod for ARMA? Just wondering.

    I know this is only on computer (for now?) but if this came to the consoles as well this would totally take the gaming market by storm. I'd love to have this to play with my friends on my console. Hey gamesradar, if you guys see this, next time you talk to Dean Hall please ask him if it would be possible to port this to the consoles (not just exclusively for one either but for all)
