A console port of DayZ is "almost certain", creator Dean Hall has said, revealing that Sony appears to be "interested" in releasing the game on PlayStation 4.

"Certainly I think if we don't, for want of a better word 'f**k up,' the PC release then I would say a console port is almost certain," Hall told The Escapist. "I know a lot of people get really hot and bothered about it. Like, I'm not a console gamer, I'm a PC gamer, but I don't think it necessarily has to hurt things."

According to Hall, DayZ "appears to be the kind of game that Sony are interested in, I think we just have to wait and see.

"We've talked and met with Sony, and they're very - you know, they're obviously interested."

DayZ saw tremendous success as a mod for PC military simulator ArmA 2, going on to win multiple awards and earn itself a standalone release. The standalone PC version has been in development at Bohemia since mid-2012.

However, news of a console port has been suggested previously by Bohemia.

Back in September, the developer told VideoGamer.com that it would "be stupid not to" consider a release on console following the success of the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft.

A release date for the standalone PC version has yet to be announced.

Starting to give up on the day z standalone to be honest the hype has gone they missed there end of year 2012 target, that's gonna cost them, but if it does come to consoles that could save it.
