DayZ - "We'd probably be stupid not to try" an Xbox 360 release, says Bohmeia

DayZ has not been officially announced for consoles yet, but Bohemia Interactive's Jan Kunt believes the firm would "probably be stupid not to try" and release it for Xbox 360.

Speaking with VideoGamer Kunt said the firm was "definitely looking into consoles closer," and pointed at the success of Minecraft - formerly a PC-only title has gone on to sell close to 4 million copies via the XBL Marketplace.

"Obviously DayZ, you've seen the success of Minecraft on Xbox Live Arcade, and we'd probably be stupid not to try to do something similar," said the Bohemia producer. "We've always wanted to make games for consoles as well. Obviously we're a PC developer and have been for some years, but consoles have a huge market and you don't have so many problems with piracy.

"So it's really interesting. PC is what it is, and I personally think PC players will stay as PC players, but the console has more penetration into mainstream markets. People who wouldn't play games on PC, they buy an Xbox or PS3 as a medium to play games. So from that point of view it makes sense to go for consoles."

A DayZ standalone version was announced in August for PC, and will release later this year.
