Dean Hall plans to leave Bohemia so he could start a new game development studio in his home country New Zealand. His goal is to create the perfect multiplayer game, thought this seems like an impossible task. Dean stated that he will always be involved with DayZ and would offer help to Bohemia Interactive as long as they needed it.
In a recent Reddit AMA, Hall mentioned he never intended to stay at the Bohemia Interactive for long. In an interview with Eurogamer he wrote that he has three game ideas and wants to chase that ultimate multiplayer experience. Adding that he feels DayZ is still a flawed concept, which is a funny thing to say after the game sold over 1 million copies.
It might be flawed, though DayZ is seen as one of the most immersive and intense games in a history of gaming. Survival aspect is the main focus, and it shows what the world would be like if Zombie Apocalypse really happened. You start with nothing and have to find supplies and weapons in order to survive. It’s a rough world of DayZ that got so many fans.
According to Hall, the DayZ community has more than 1.5 million fans, and they most likely won’t take this news in a good light. No matter what fans might think, we can all agree Dean Hall is an honest developer who never fooled gamers with fake promises. He was always so involved with the community as well.
Some might say Dean got enough money and decided to leave the game, but that would be so untrue. As he said in an interview "I am a grenade," he begun, "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.”
Dean Hall is backing off to let others lead his game in a best way possible.
