Dean Hall to Step Down as Lead Designer - MMORPG.com

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.
