Days Gone's PS4 exclusive zombie bashing has looked amazing every time Sony has shown it off but clearly its open-world game ambitions are taking a little more time to realise. While the game was originally aiming for a release this year, Days Gone is currently aiming for April 26, 2019, having previously slipped to a Feb release date.
Don't get too disheartened though. Naughty Dog has delayed almost everything they've released recently and that always turns out okay. Asad Qizilbash, a Sony marketing VP statement about the game needing "further polish" even has a ring of Naughty Dog about it. So fingers crossed the studio is polishing a rough diamond and not, you know, the other thing...
Our team recently decided to move the release of #DaysGone to April 26, 2019. Full Details: https://t.co/qjDsxC3OYu https://t.co/0BEQ6dy27yOctober 19, 2018
While it means our dreams of taking on hordes of 'freakers' before riding our bikes into the sunset will have to wait a little longer, our experience with the game so far suggests it's going to be worth it. Bend Studio can stay out of detention for now.
