During a recent interview, creative director John Garvin has provided an interesting statement about the state of the work on Bend Studio's Days Gone, explaining that a release date might be coming soon.
Bend Studio has offered a comment about Days Gone release date announcement, detailing that a release date will be coming "very soon." A comment like this seems to be hinting at a further E3 showcase with a trailer ending complete of a date, but we wouldn't bet on that.
Eurogamer played Days Gone E3 2018 demo and this is what they have to say about it: "It's a messy game, I struggled to get the camera, aiming and Deacon's movement, all of which succumb to laggy drift, to line up".
Days Gone Creative Director told GameInformer that he is "SICK" of Days Gone vs The Last of Us comparison and added that the only similarity between the two games is that they are a third-person game where you're killing creatures.
Sony Bend (the developer behind upcoming PS4 exclusive game Days Gone) has already started hiring for their next PlayStation 4 exclusive game. This information comes from a new job listing that was posted earlier today at Sony Bend's website.
Two credible insider sources have revealed that Days Gone delay was purely a business decision from Sony and the development team are way ahead of the development milestones. The sources further added that the new Days Gone release window is the start of Sony's 2019 Fiscal Year i.e. April 2019.
