DayZ, a standalone mod for Arma 2, may become yet another console exclusive for PlayStation 4 and once again it’s Microsoft’s restrictive publishing rules that have gained a win for Sony.
“We’re happy to see DayZ on any console but there is a… I guess one problem,” creator Dean Hall told Edge, “The console needs to not charge for us to do updates and it needs to be indie title friendly.”
Dean was also asked if the two console giants were still charging developers a fee for releasing patches and bug fixes.
“As far as I’m aware, Microsoft is, Sony’s not. And Sony allows you to self-publish. But who knows?”
“Maybe Microsoft will change. From our perspective, we need self-publishing because DayZ would be a great digital download title.”
