Day Z lead Dean Hall said that the standalone release would be driven by its PC development, and that he was meeting with other platform holders at gamescom, reports Joystiq.
"You're not going to put it on the consoles if you're only going to sell 100,000 units or something like that," he said. "Day Z will be driven by its PC development and it will innovative on that.
"And, once we're at a point, we'll take it and do a Mac version, 360 and PS3," Hall explained.
Hall also revealed that the game would not receive modding support at launch, offering no further plans on the timescale for its inclusion.
