The zombie-themed mod for Arma II will continue to be distributed for free.

Over a million registered users have joined the game since its launch in April. A standalone edition has already been confirmed, and creator Dean Hall continues to bat away interest from publishers.

“Many, many publishers have contacted me about Day Z,” he told MCV, “But I always ended up repeating the same question: what benefit are you providing development?”

“What value is actually being added to the process by publishers when you can distribute for free?”
