Multiplayer open world survival title DayZ is coming to PlayStation 4, Dean Hall has announced.

Hall took the stage at Gamescom to broadcast the news and express his excitement, but further details are scant.

“We wanted to develop the game for each platform’s strengths,” he said.

It's unclear how involved Hall will be with the port, as he’s leaving developer Bohemia Interactive soon in order to set up a new studio in New Zealand.

DayZ is currently available on PC via Steam Early Access.

It’s unclear whether it will be offered in a similar manner on PlayStation 4. Sony has said it’s considering an Early Access program for PlayStation 4.
