We already know that Day Z lead Dean Hall wants to make his popular ArmA 2 mod go standalone sometime this year, but he's setting his ambitions even higher to multiplatform development as well. Apparently Hall would like to release the game on consoles as well, and actively meeting console developers at Gamescom 2012.
"You're not going to put it on the consoles if you're only going to sell 100,000 units or something like that," Hall told Joystiq. "DayZ 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."
To that end, he confirmed that he's meeting console developers at GamesCom, but says he's not going in blind. His experience at Bohemia Interactive has made him aware of the "pitfalls and horror" involved in developing for console platforms.
