Bohemia Interactive Studios, the company that developed Arma, Arma2, and developing Arma3 told "Rocket" to stop ALL the work he's doing on Arma3 in order to form his own standalone dedicated team in order to work entirely on DayZ !
Additionally, DayZ mod already works VERY well on Arma3 on their internal build. Rocket will also be developing a "standalone" complete conversion game of Arma3 for DayZ. This means that after Arma3 releases we can look forward to a standalone product released with the Arma3 engine for DayZ that is similar to the new invasion 1944 conversion they recently released of Arma2 for $30 on steam.
So Rocket has garnered enough attention, and made Bohemia Interactive enough money, to justify giving him his own team to work on DayZ as a standalone zombie survival sim for Arma3 ! Additionally, due to the portability of the mod, his team can first develope everything on the Arma2 engine for us to test and THEN port it over to Arma3 for his standalone release of the Arma3 version product.
-Squee- cannot wait !
Also, don't miss out of the fact that Rocket just had some awesome T-Shirts made ! I really need to find out how to get one O__O!
