Dean Hall, the creator of DayZ, has announced he’s working on a new multiplayer game. In an interview with Eurogamer, Deal Hall revealed that the game will be multiplayer that will fill a gap in the market.
Creator Dean Hall is deliberately being extremely cautious about revealing details of the new game. As he said in the interview: “I believe it’s a gap in the market,” he then went on to say, “For that reason I’m going to be pretty coy about exact specific of it – also because of expectations and how experimental we are at the moment. I need to be deliberately coy; I need to avoid a kind of War Z situation.”
By the War Z situation, he’s referring to the copycat game that was released to imitate DayZ. War Z now known as ‘Infestation: Survivor Stories’, was developed by Hammerpoint Interactive and published by OP Productions. War Z was deemed to be one of the worst games ever released.
RocketWerkz, Dean Hall’s New Zealand based studio, announced the arrival of ION at 2015’s E3. ION is a space-survival game, which the release date is still yet to be confirmed. What we know so far about the new multiplayer game is limited. However, we do know that it’s not ION. The game is being funded by Chinese online gaming giant Tencent. Tencent owns League of Legends developers Riot Games and part of Epic Games, who are responsible for Gears of War and Paragon. If these two developer’s reputations are anything to go on, then the ‘new multiplayer game’ should be something to look forward to.
We’re looking forward to learning more about the game. When we have more details released about the new title we will be writing a full article on the game and what our expectations. Let us know what kind of multiplayer game you think RocketWerkz is developing.
