DayZ Standalone probably won't even reach beta until the end of this year

Full release is a long way off

Bohemia Interactive has warned gamers not to expect Dayz Standalone to reach full release status any time soon.

Marek Spanel, boss of the Czech studio has said in the game's latest development blog that the game is unlikely to progress into beta status until the end of 2014.

"We do not expect to reach beta status sooner than the end of 2014," Spanel stated. DayZ Standalone probably won't even reach beta until the end of this year

He continued, "We didn't want to compromise on the brutal and unforgiving nature of the early days of the DayZ mod, so we're very surprised to see such interest as this clearly is not a game for everyone, especially considering that there are some radical changes under the hood in comparison to the mod.”

The game has already sold over 875,000 copies since it launched on Steam Early Access which equates to around 17.5 million GBP which is not too shabby for an unfinished game.
