Days Gone's zombie bashing bikers are running late, delayed to April 2019

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.

Don't get too disheartened though. Naughty Dog has delayed almost everything they've released recently and that always turns out okay.
