DayZ set to arrive on PS4, but could skip Xbox One

Dean Hall creator of the Arma 2 mod DayZ on his latest interview with Edge has suggested that upcoming DayZ standalone version, intended for PC and next gen consoles, might not be released on Xbox One due to publishing and patching restrictions set by Microsoft.

“Microsoft does not allow indies to self publish and charges for patches, while on PS4, issuing a patch is free, and indies can publish titles themselves”, says Hall.

When asked whether Microsoft and Sony are still charging for patches, Hall replied: “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.”

Hall added that Sony’s free patching policy is preferable because there are a lot of bugs in DayZ. “It’s gonna take a long time for us to be able to iron this out and we don’t wanna have to be paying ten, twenty thousand dollars – whatever it is – every time we wanna do an update.”

    Are you fcking kidding me?!

    Microsoft PLEASE! change or lower that restrictions!

    They will lose an insane amount of purchases for the Xbox one that will be going to Sony with their Ps4 then.

    The DayZ Standalone is just awesome and it would be terribly stupid if they wouldn’t change the restrictions and lose the chance for more purchases wouldn’t it?
