Dean "Rocket" Hall Blasts off from Bohemia
Dean "Rocket" Hall, plans to step down as lead designer of the popular MMO zombie survival game - DayZ. He was also the main developer of DayZ. Hall expressed that he wanted to leave Bohemia Interactive by the end of the year in order to set up a new studio, where he will make a "perfect" multiplayer game.
Hall has described himself as very charismatic and persuasive. Those qualities might seem to be desirable to most people, but Hall sees it as a precursor to the company's doom. He believes that his attitude will lead DayZ and Bohemia Interactive to fail.
"Eventually, that's the bad person to have. Eventually, you don't want the guy telling you to go over the top and get through. So at some point I'll be a disaster for the project, at least in a leadership role." – Dean Hall.
Hall has been thinking about stepping back from his position for a while. Last month he said "for me there'll be a time when my full-on involvement is finished, and I think a lot of the fans will agree with that".
Hall already has three ideas for games he would like to develop. Currently no details on what those games might be.
