It has been revealed this week that the standalone version of the new DayZ standalone game has already grossed over $24 million selling over 800,000 copies in just its first month.
It was only last month when DayZ launched on the Steam Early Access games network, selling 88,000 copies in the first 12 hours after release, even though the game is still in its early development stages at the current time.
The announcement was made by the games creator Dean Hall who explained:
“We (bohemia and I) had very ambitious plans for 2014 already, however this amount of sales was completely unexpected. Honestly, 250k within a quarter was what I would have considered a success. So to move nearly 800,000 in under a month is crazy. We’ll be finalizing our roadmap in mid January, but it is safe to say that this kind of result will be having a very positive effect on that roadmap.”
DayZ Alpha released Steam Early Access launch trailer below:
“DayZ Early Access is your chance to experience DayZ as it evolves throughout its developmentprocess,”-“Be aware that our Early Access offer is a representation of our core pillars, and the framework we have created around them. It is a work in progress and therefore contains a variety of bugs. We strongly advise you not to buy and play the game at this stage unless you clearly understand what Early Access means and are interested in participating in the ongoing development cycle.”Filed Under: Gaming News, Top News
