DayZ creator Dean Hall says that the drama around DayZ wannabe The War Z has him questioning his chosen line of work.

“I've been pretty depressed about the whole situation,” he wrote on Reddit.

“From a personal standpoint, this whole ‘saga’ of the development made me seriously question if I wanted to be involved in the industry and I gave serious thought to cutting my losses and not being involved in the project.”

Hall also detailed why a DayZ update that was expected to surface this month hasn’t arrived.

“At my Army Discharge medical this week, they noted I now have high blood pressure. Some things in life just aren't worth worrying about,” he said.

“I've been getting hammered by a massive amount with requests for information about DayZ release, interviews and my reactions to this and stuff and such - but for my own sanity I retreated and have kept to myself.

“Right now I'm just at home doing bits and pieces on the DayZ development. The rest of the DayZ team is doing the same.

“I realize that I went back on my word about releasing an update, but went back into my shell for a bit last week, and I'll come out when the dust is all settled.”
