Sony’s exclusive post-apocalyptic zombie biker adventure has been pushed back two months, according to a PlayStation Blog post. Now fans will have to wait until April 26, 2019 to get their hands on Sony’s next first-party exclusive.
Days Gone was unveiled at E3 2016 and was rumored at one point for a 2018 launch, before officially receiving a release date of February 22, 2019 in PlayStation’s Countdown to E3 coverage. Now, the game will be releasing two months later in order to “further polish” the game, according to the game’s developers, Sony Bend. The push back definitely gives the game some breathing room, because three other games are still slated for February 22: Microsoft’s mega-delayed Crackdown 3, atmospheric open-world shooter Metro Exodus, and EA’s Destiny/Iron Man hybrid Anthem.
The blog post also detailed three other PlayStation games. The first of which is Déraciné, From Software’s first foray into VR. The game will launch exclusively for PSVR on November 6. Concrete Genie, announced at Sony’s Paris Games Week conference last year, hasn’t had much time in the spotlight since its reveal, but Sony has reassured us the game is on track for an early 2019 release. Everybody’s Golf VR, which was revealed a month ago at TGS, finally got a release window of Spring 2019. The game will be playable with either the Dualshock 4 controller or PlayStation Move wands.
Are you bummed about the delay, or do you think Days Gone needs the extra time and polish? How do you feel about Sony’s commitment to PSVR? Be sure to let us know down below, and keep it at Circle Square Games for all things PlayStation.
