DayZ Creator Angry about War Z, says DayZ Should Arrive Before April

In a recent AMA on Reddit, creator of the immensely popular DayZ mod Dean Hall had some harsh (and arguably justified) words to say about The War Z:

I am angry about The War Z, I’m very angry. I’m quite hurt personally because anyone can see how similar the words are, and while the average gamer knows the difference individual people don’t. I’ve had family members/close friends mistake the difference and confront me about what they believed was unethical behavior they thought I was making. I really don’t think anyone can understand just quite how exasperated that can make you feel when you’ve gambled everything on something, put your whole self and reputation on the line. So it hasn’t made my life very pleasant and I disagree entirely with the conduct and how consumers have been treated.

Hall also revealed that DayZ (the standalone game) should be arriving before April, but cautioned that anything could happen to push that date back. He said that he would have a more concrete date to offer after the Tech test, as anything before that was still speculation. Lastly, he confirmed that there would be a beta phase before the April release, and that a lot of things were dependent on how that went.
