Arma 3 and Day Z Standalone Not Coming To Consoles

Eskimo Press: Arma 3 and Day Z were set to release late 2012 on PC and later on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, both the games were announced to be delayed, and there is still no sign of a release date for either game. That was until today, 21st of February 2012, when Bohemia Interactive announced that Arma 3 will be a Steam-exlusive title because otherwise they'd never be able to release the game in 2013. Considering that Day Z standalone is also suppoed to release this year and use the Arma 3 engine, we can confidently assume that Day Z will not be coming to consoles either (ArmA 3, DayZ, PC)

They're a good hacker group trying to move to making a full game. That's a BIG step, and this is bound to happen. I'm okay with this, just pluck through and get it done guys. Then fry bigger chickens when you can, later.

Because Eskimopress needs more hits, so they've decided to make more rumor articles.

The fact that they embracing steamworks for user content is the best news ive heard all year.

So its not coming to PS3 or 360, so that doesn't mean it can't come to the next gen consoles.
ZeroX9876  +   578d ago
I don't want another BF3 on consoles. I prefer getting it on next gen.

''That was until today, 21st of February 2012''.

Exactly. DayZ Standalone will not even be using the ARMA3 engine. It's a combination of Arma2, ToH, and some features from the ARMA3 engine all customized to what is needed only for DayZ.

dayz doesnt use the arma 3 engine. it uses arma 2 but an enhanced version with bits of arma 3 put in. so there is no point in assuming anything about the dayz standalone with the news. dean hall has stated he would love to put dayz on consoles if he hits 1 million sales of the standalone on pc. i bet you he still plans to go along with that.

" Arma 3 and Day Z were set to release late 2012"
Warz screen shot... wtf?

btw bohemia NEVER said anything about releasing those games on consoles...wtf are you talking about?
RedSoakedSponge  +   578d ago
this article is pure bullshit man.
EskimoPress  +   578d ago
The WarZ screen shot has been pulled. It was poorly labeled in our database, but this has been fixed.

Apart from that, this is not an article, it's a press release directly from Bohemia Interactive.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

I'd just keep going as is and release on Steam first then focus on consoles afterwards to avoid delaying it. I would like to see what all the Day Z people could do with the money they would make from releasing on more platforms, plus I think they deserve all the money they can get for what they've done and consoles would make them a ton.
BootHammer  +   578d ago
I agree, let it progress on Steam and in time then consider the console platforms.
kevnb  +   578d ago
consoles would hold the game back, unless they forced keyboard and mouse and waited for the next gen.
kevnb  +   578d ago
Yet PC gamers on here will complain consoles ruin everything. Go play arma 3 and dayz dammit, these games should be a PC gamers wet dream.
soultecc  +   578d ago
actually consoles do ruin everything

Seriously I don't think Xbox360/PS3 can handle Arma 3 or even Arma 2 for that matter!

Arma 2 on low still requires a PC way more powerful than a PS3/x360!

Now the PS4PC can handle Arma 2, DayZ, and maybe even Arma 3!
