Dean Hall starts recruiting for new game studio RocketWerkz

dean hall

With that tweet, it seems, Dean "Rocket" Hall is officially announcing the start of his post-DayZ career. Hall revealed his planned departure from Bohemia back in February, stating that he wanted to step down as the DayZ lead by the end of the year.

His new development studio is based in New Zealand, and has a website. It is blank.

DayZ, meanwhile, is still in full production—most recently releasing a road-map for future updates and a cannibalistic update.

Until Hall announces the team's first project, all I can say is: Yolo? Really?

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
