ArmaCO sold like crazy because of DayZ.
Features that should have been in A3 won't make it into the game.
Well guys the community was quite unsure if it is a good or a bad thing when Arma CO sales skyrocketed because of DayZ. The majority agreed that more sales will mean more money for BIS and therefore more Devtime for Arma3.
Thats why some people were quite confused when important features like the 3D Editor were removed from the confirmed Features list because they can't be finished in time.
Today BIS announced that there will be a stand alone DayZ game.
What if A3 devtime was redirected to the new Project? What if BIS focuses on features that are important to both games and not on stuff that would make A3 more awesome? Obviously DayZ doesn't need an 3D Editor or improved AI.
So here are some simple questions:
Will A3 Devs work on DayZ instead of A3?
Have A3 funds been redirected to the new Game?
