Days Gone release delayed until April 2019


Sony has pushed back the release date of PlayStation 4-exclusive Days Gone, from the previously touted February 22, 2019, to April 26, 2019.

The Japanese publisher announced the move in a blog post, stating: “We want to share a change in release date for this highly anticipated title from Bend Studio. We recently decided to move the release of Days Gone from the crowded February timeframe to 26th April 2019. While the studio is eager to see Days Gone in the hands of fans, Bed Studio will take the opportunity to further polish Days Gone.”

The blog post also provided details of when the likes of Deracine and Everybody’s Golf VR will launch, but it didn’t go so far as providing a release date for Media Molecule’s innovative game-creating effort Dreams.

Developer Bed Studio describes Days Gone thus: “Set in the beautiful, volcanic scarred high-desert of the Pacific Northwest, Days Gone is an open-world action-adventure game where you play as Deacon St. John, a Drifter and bounty hunter who would rather risk the dangers of the broken road than live in one of the “safe” wilderness encampments. The game takes place two years after a global pandemic has killed almost everyone, but transformed millions of others into what survivors call Freakers – mindless, feral creatures, more animal than human but very much alive and quickly evolving.”
