DayZ creator Dean Hall will be heading up the project and plans to continue development of the game and support for the mod in parallel. Details about the game are being kept under wraps at the moment, but Hall will be attending this year's gamescom event, where it's likely more will be revealed. It's pretty safe to assume that it will include online play, some of the features that have made DayZ so successful and lots of zombies.
