All this drama, what that's saying about any publicity...?
DayZ developer responds to ‘depressing’ War Z controversy
by Dave Cook
DayZ creator Dean Hall has responded to The War Z being pulled from Steam, developer Hammerpoint Games butting heads with gamers over the title’s Steam descriptor, supposedly copy-pasting images from the Walking Dead TV show and charging players for respawns. It’s been a hell of a week for the undead.

Over on the DayZ Reddit, Hall responded to The War Z issue, “I know I have been very quiet lately. So this will be really all I’ll say for the moment. I’ve been pretty depressed about the whole situation. From a personal standpoint, this whole “saga” of the development made me seriously question if I wanted to be involved in the industry and I gave serious thought to cutting my losses and not being involved in the project.

“At my Army Discharge medical this week, they noted I now have high blood pressure. Some things in life just aren’t worth worrying about. I’ve been getting hammered by a massive amount with requests for information about DayZ release, interviews and my reactions to this and stuff and such – but for my own sanity I retreated and have kept to myself.

“Right now I’m just at home doing bits and pieces on the DayZ development. The rest of the DayZ team is doing the same. I realize that I went back on my word about releasing an update, but went back into my shell for a bit last week, and I’ll come out when the dust is all settled.”
