PS4 Exclusive ‘Days Gone’ Delayed Until 2019

Published

on

Looking forward to the upcoming horror game ‘Days Gone’? Well, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer than expected as the game has been delayed.

The game’s official site now lists the release date as “2019” which obviously pushes it beyond it’s 2018 initial release year, a serious bummer.

Sony said that the game “will now be releasing in 2019 and we will keep you updated on the launch date” when asked by USGamer.

‘Days Gone’ takes place in an open ruined world overrun with the ravenous undead and forces players to fight, strategize, and explore on your own terms to survive.

Microsoft has responded to recent reports that there will be changes to it’s first-party strategy and has confirmed that four game titles will be released on rival consoles.

More specifically, Xbox head Phil Spencer said that ‘Starfield’ and ‘Indiana Jones’ will not be among the four titles heading to other platforms. Both games had a number of candidate platforms, per reports, adding that this is “not a change to our fundamental exclusive strategy.”

“We don’t damage Xbox and we can grow our business using what other platforms have to help us with that,” Spencer said, according to GamesIndustry.biz.  “Looking forward, I think there is an interesting story for us of introducing Xbox franchises to players on other platforms to get them more interested in Xbox. We think there’s a good brand value for Xbox there.”

Xbox president Sarah Bond announced that Activision Blizzard games would begin to be added into Game Pass offerings, starting with Diablo 4, which will be added on March 28th.

Additionally, Bond said that Microsoft is still working on hardware for the future and that their focus regarding the future is “delivering the largest technical leap you will ever have seen in a hardware generation.”
