OP  2/24/14 7:01:26 AM#1

Eurogamer is reporting that DayZ's Dean Hall is stepping down as the game's Lead Designer. According to the interview, Hall will be leaving Bohemia Interactive completely by the end of the year in order to set up his own studio in New Zealand.

"I am a grenade," he begun, this time sat in the DayZ office in central Prague. "I have a specific use. I'm really good at risk-taking and making other people take risks, I've always been good at that in my life. Like you say, maybe I've got the gift of the gab, so I can talk, I can explain something, I can talk people up to the ledge and get them to jump off it.

"That's what I did with DayZ; I've done it twice now [once with the mod, again with the standalone] - two new code teams have separately done it.

"But eventually, that's the bad person to have. Eventually, you don't want the guy telling you to go over the top and get through. So at some point I'll be a disaster for the project, at least in a leadership role.

Well that stinks, I was suckered into the alpha too. I would not have purchased if I knew leadership was just going to walk off.

This sucks so much. We should get ready for health bars and fast travel as a guy said on dayz forums.

This is epic news for DayZ in the long run.

Kudos to Dean for doing what is best for the game and studio.

this is a prime example of why spending a box price on a product that is no where near box price ready is a risky thing and why i stay well away from it

 

but i am sure he is happy becoming very rich from a game he no longer has to do much with regardless of success or failure

 

and in his interview he already bashes DayZ saying it is "a fundamentally flawed concept"

anyone investing money in any of his future projects is crazy

Hopefully him leaving will have a positive change on further development.

I feel that DayZ SA has stagnated, it feels old and well safe. The zombie code is laughable, there is zero risk or danger IMO.

Being able to camp out in military bases is another problem, also server hopping and looting is an issue.

Don't even get me started in missing features, I know alpha - but cmon been alpha for a while.

The game needs refocusing and a serious drive to get it completed - it feels like the devs are just sitting on it.

Does that mean we'll get some meaty updates to DayZ:SA? at last?  I love DayZ but it's going at a snail pace.

What did you expect he's made a quick buck of a crap load of people including myself believing all the crap he spouted about this amazing game he was creating based on the MOD what we got was a shell of game that actually plays worse than the MOD. No he's jumping ship with his money and starting a new project that he will probably half finish too.

This guy and Peter Molyneux must of gone to the same school because they are both amazing at making shit sound like gold.

More like snails pace in super slow motion.

How I wish that a serious dev team would actually put forth some effort, I feel they just gave up.

No...
Not without incident.

2/24/14 7:49:41 AM#15

I am so glad I waited to buy this.  This is one reason it is best to wait for a product and pass the hype!

Now I get to wait and see how it comes out and then make a better decision.

So like Dean I am out of here and will step back and see what becomes of it.

Having worked with people of the same personality type before i have nothing but respect for his choice of path. All to often people overstay and things get very tense and quality drops. Not to mention that the number of conflicts tend to grow.

 

Going to be fun to see what he takes on next.

And that my friends is 1 of 100 reasons why one should never be sucked into this "Early Access". Having said that, if I were him I'd take a break for health reasons then come back to it, not to give up on leadership. He and his pals just made crap ton of money from people, he shouldn't be giving up on is position.

Well at least it wasn't news the project was being sold to EA.

$1.99 to instantly recover from unconsciousness

$5.99 for a box of Ammo

$2.99 for emergency teleport out of elecktro

£1.45 for a bambie starter kit; includes a can of sardines, a pipsi and a baseball bat

I hope this cranks it up a notch. This game is fading for me as time goes on.
