The standalone version of DayZ is still very much on the way, shown by the fact that “DayZ Early Access” has appeared in the Steam database. The Escapist spotted the entry, and Joystiq reached out to creator Dean Hall for comment.

“Amazing how quickly the internet picks up on things isn’t it,” he said. “All I can say is that progress has been very good, we’re a mix of nervous and excited. And as I’d stated on my twitter when I announced my break from social media/updates, we are on the final lap. Part of the final process involves the actual administration of the release, which is actually surprisingly complex and time-consuming.

“So, to confirm, there is no release date announcement and we’re 100 percent focused on getting the alpha out the door.”
