Sony has today announced that Days Gone has been delayed from its original February 22nd release date. It will now release on April 26th.
Whilst Sony has said that delay was to further polish the game, there’s no doubt that Sony wanted to get away from the release of Anthem, Crackdown 3 and Metro: Exodus which were all set to release on the same date.
Here’s what Sony said on the PlayStation Blog:
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 April 26, 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.
