DayZ development team “effectively doubling”

Sunday, 2 March 2014 22:18 GMT By Brenna Hillier

DayZ developer Bohemia Interactive has allocated more resources to the zombie sandbox, resulting in a significant increase in personnel.


“We are inducting a large number of new people to the team, effectively doubling the whole project,” the developer wrote in the project’s latest blog update.

For the past week, Bohemia has been focusing on bugs, but is about to begin work on a pile of new features including a cooking system.

DayZ’s full standalone release is expected in 2015, much further off then anyone expected – although it is playable through Steam Early Access. DayZ creator Dean Hall is leaving the development team, saying he’s done all he can and wants to work on new projects.

Thanks, Polygon.
