Ion is a ‘massive open world universe’ from Dean Hall and Improbable

DayZ creator Dean Hall announced his new RocketWerkz studio last winter. This week, we’ve got a better idea of what he’s been up to alongside “simulated worlds” developer Improbable. The two entities revealed Ion, a simulation MMO and a “massive open world universe” inspired by beloved RPG Space Station 13.

Ion looks to be set in space and it may involve disasters and cryosleep. At least that’s what we gleaned from the brief trailer that’s embedded after the cut.

Yeah… when is DayZ being released? Hard to get hyped on the name and trailer alone.

I think I’ll wait until this is out of development and has at least one content update up its sleeve before I put any money towards it.
… and seeing that Dean Hall is behind it, I can probably safely go spend that money on something else, as the above will never happen.

IMO Dean Hall is on the same level as code}{atch.

But people tend to buy everything from everyone so I guess it’s ok nowadays to cheat your customers.

I was promised Deans vision of Dayz and didn’t receive it. I bought the game for the mod then bought the standalone and he just leaves? I don’t care what the drama was, you man up and deliver the product promised, period.
Honestly, F-Rocket. He’s a boy in a mans world without his word.

Reihen Dystopiq Thats all a load of lies..  He himself decided what engine to use and he also had the option to use the Arma 3 engine.  He’s also the one that decided to take a trip with the money and then come back and part ways with the company.  
Not the least of all to mention that DayZ the mod was a rip off of another mod with just zombies added to it. Alot of the code of the mod was taken verbatim from another mod. There was articles all over the internet about it showing the code and everything.
So to think that he can make and finish a game himself is just being in lala land.  There is very very little chance of he being able to make a game himself.

After thinking about this the new game should be called BallZ, because he’s got some huge ones to release another game.
