DayZ Dev “Still Committed” to Bring the Game to Xbox One in 2018
It appears that DayZ on Xbox One is still happening as the game’s developer has just confirmed that the open-world survival game will come out of early-access next year, and will then make its Xbox One appearance afterward.
Lead producer at Bohemia Interactive, Eugen Harton, confirmed this in on the game’s official blog.
As soon as the PC BETA is headed in a way we like, we’re still committed to bringing DayZ to Xbox, where we have a large community of gamers patiently (very patiently!) waiting for a truly hardcore online survival game. All of that will (and must) happen next year – meaning we’re just about to start what could possibly be the most exciting year for DayZ so far. In short: DayZ will be out of Early Access next year, and we’ll also finally deliver it to console players in 2018.
Make no mistake: this commitment is done taking all of our previous scheduling mistakes into the account. We’re serious about it.
DayZ was released via Early-Access on Steam back in 2013. The title was announced for PS4 a year later, and the Xbox One version was confirmed in 2015. Interestingly, the blog post only mentions the Xbox One version of the game, and its unsure if and when the title will release on PS4.
