DayZ not releasing until 2016

Bohemia Interactive needs a bit more time with the PC and console versions of Day Z. The beta version of the final game will launch on PC in Q4 2015 and the console prototype will debut Q3 2015.

The final game is supposed to release in the first half of 2016. That’s a long wait though Day-Z’s popularity is probably strong enough to sustain the delay.

This news is disappointing to fans who previously believed that the beta would launch by the end of 2014. 12-18 more months is a pretty big delay though it should be worth it in the end.
