Well at least 2 or 3 people haven't actually read that Dean isn't leaving until at least the end of 2014 when they expect the game to be near on done. He's not leaving when it's half done. He's at least onboard for another approx 10 months. He's planning on going home, back to New Zealand and starting up a company there and doing what he wants to do which he'd thought about way before DayZ SA did as well as it did. DayZ SA won't be left high n dry, it'll carry on developing even after Dean leaves, which may be good for the project or bad, it depends who takes over and what direction they expect it to go. I'm no Dean fan boy, in fact until all the fuss over the WarZ/DayZ thing came about last year I'd never even heard of the bloke, but people's reading comprehension and doomsaying is unreal at times.
