Dean Hall, the creator of the original DayZ mod, and Brian Hicks, the former creative director on that game's standalone version, have teamed up again. Dean Hall made the announcement on Twitter today, writing that Hicks has joined Rocketwerkz as executive producer on a forthcoming, unannounced survival game.
After the huge, unexpected success of the original DayZ Arma 2 mod, Dean Hall worked on the standalone version at Bohemia Interactive before stepping down in 2014. He then founded Rocketwerkz, which has so far shipped the space station construction sim Stationeers, and VR strategy game Out of Ammo.
Two devs instrumental in the creation of DayZ have teamed up.
