Whilst it’s a shame, as we are really keen to get our hands on this, it may not be the worst thing in the world. Sony announced on their blog this morning that the Days Gone release date will be pushed back to April 2019 for “further polish”. Read the except below:-
“Release date: 26th April 2019 (UPDATED)
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, Bend Studio will take the opportunity to further polish Days Gone.
As PlayStation fans already know, Days Gone is an open-world action game set in the high-desert of the Pacific Northwest. Traversing harsh landscapes on their drifter bike, players must fight for resources as they attempt to survive broken roads, unpredictable weather, attacks from other human factions, infected wildlife and roaming Freakers — a brutal, dynamic world that is dangerous both day and night.”
Now whilst this is a shame for a game that’s been anticipated for a few years now, it may do it some good to avoid the original release date clashes with Anthem, Metro Exodus and Crackdown 3.
Days Gone will now be released on 26th April 2019 exclusively to Playstation 4.
