It has no standardized, common meaning related to game development. It's likely a custom file format used by a particular game or game engine, and you're unlikely to find third-party tools for viewing or editing it. Why do you ask?

im applying to work as a games tester at ROckstar games and they sent me a questionaire and that was one of the questions, my initial thought was that it was a file name made up by the company for internal use as not to cause susspicion for people outside the company to be looking for such a file extension...sortof a fail safe system if that makes any sense ?

Google now shows this thread as the top result for "ccz file extension" ;P which is not very helpful...

I guess you'll have to go with "a zipped (compressed) control, command, configuration, or file manifest"

I can eat 22 cadburys creme eggs in 15 minutes, thank you very much.

In context to that question, maybe Rockstar is playing another a practical joke on you. I'd write "My dry cleaner says it's used update prices."

On the other hand, it could be something real that they won't berate you for not knowing. It could be a test to see if you'll lie by saying "Oh, not that CCZ. I always use those CCZ's. I practically built a whole game on CCZ's!" If this is true, admitting you found the answer on Google would be good.

And, maybe you really SHOULD know it to work there. Maybe you don't have the background to work there. If this is true, it would be best not to say you had to Google it.

My message is simple: Don't sweat it. What will happen will happen. Plan for what will and what won't, making no assumptions on either.

Just in case I'm wrong: what was the EXACT wording of the question?

Found this googling: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Computing#Relating_to_game_development.2C_what_is_a_.E2.80.98.CCZ.E2.80.99_file.3F

The interesting bit is "Can anyone help me with this question please? All I know from a forum is that its a smaller version of a .cc file and I dont know what a .cc file is either. Thanks.
I guess .ccz means it's a .cc compressed with gzip (.tar.gz -> .tgz and .svg.gz -> .svgz). FILExt lists many uses for .cc, and this says it's often used for C++ source code, but gzipping it would be a little unusual... --grawity"

Googling for "cc file extension" then provides a lot of results, I didn't check many of them but the couple I did seem to agree that it's some sort of source code file extension.

I don't know how reliable that is, but I hope it helps.
