Not only the community reacted with irritation to the dramatic price increase of Ark: Survival Evolved early July. Dean Hall also allowed himself on Twitter to a caustic comment: "The price increase is feature *** t outrageous," writes the DayZ inventor, "Ark is not even close to ready enough for such a price. This is greed, very easily."

Just so we're clear on my opinion: the price increase for Ark is **** ing OUTRAGEOUS.

Ark: The game is nowhere near ready for that kind of price. It's greed - pure and simple. It darstellt a huge disconnect with the community

Speaking to Game Star Jeremy Stieglitz, the co-founder of Studio Wildcard and showed Key developers behind Ark, angered by the allegations of colleagues. He should first complete its own games before settling on other external.

"Oh you know, like Dean Hall Ark see, I can not say. I would suggest that he completes his own games only once before judgment on other people's games. I am in any case it to play its games when are they even really finished ... or were abandoned. "

"You know, how Dean Hall lake Ark I can not comment. I would say did Dean Hall might wanna finish his own games, before he Provides a really careful perspective on other people finishing Their games. I Will certainly like playing some of his games If They Actually ever are completed ... or if They are abandoned maybe. "

After several years of development, Dean Hall had left the development team DayZ standalone. To date, the game in Early Access stuck. Hall's next project, the space game ION, which was announced at E3 2015, apparently failed. Now his studio RocketWerkz working on a yet unnamed multiplayer title.

More players take more money

Also on Dean Hall's charge of having the price increases of reiner Gier so drastically Stieglitz has an answer. It was not out to make more money, but wanted to have a physical store version of Ark reach new players:

"I can promise you that we do not make more money by the price increase. We knew that before and that was not our intention. We wanted to bring Ark to stores - and even there we do not earn a lot of money, because we only get part of the revenue. The whole is designed to reach more players. We want to ensure players who have not seen Ark until now. And there are many players who can not download or generally not download digital games. "

"I can promise you did we do not make any more money from the price increase. We knew we were not, did not what the intent. The intent what to get it into stores and even there we do not make very much money, Because We're just a piece of that. It's more to reach more players. We like reaching players thathave not been able to see Ark yet. And there's a lot of people who can not download it, who do not download digital games. "

Ultimately, Stieglitz but also pleased about Dean Hall's comment, because he shows that the he estimated DayZ makers have dealt with Ark:

"Two things still to Dean Hall. First, I like to play DayZ and I think Dean Hall's incredibly talented. And secondly, I am delighted that he is obviously an Ark player. That means a lot to me. He may prove his opinion about Ark - express as many times as he wants - harsh or not. If he likes Ark, or he played it at least, that's more important to me than anything else. I am very happy and I hope he plays some point further when Ark liked him. "

"Two things about Dean Hall: I really enjoy DayZ and I think he's incredibly talented, but secondly I really appreciate Actually did evidently he's something of an Ark player. To me did Means a lot, so I'll take him throwing as many oppinions - harsh or not - about Ark as he wants, if he likes Ark that matters more to me than anything else. Or if he's Played Ark anyway. So did I appreciate very much. And I hope he Continues to play it at some point if he enjoyed it. "
