Jay-Z tried to change the name of DayZ

Dean "Rocket" Hall reveals anecdote in AMA.

During a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Reddit, the creator of DayZ, Dean "Rocket" Hall, briefly explained how rapper Jay-Z's lawyers got in touch and asked them to change the name of their popular zombie survival sim, DayZ.


During the same interview Hall also answered questions regarding his favourite games: "Of all time, UFO enemy unknown. Right now? Probably either KSP [Kerbal Space Program] or Project Zomboid". The DayZ creator also discussed his fascination with Mount Everest, as well as talking plenty about the zombie game itself. If you're a fan it's pretty much essential reading.
