The studio behind PlayStation exclusive open-world action-adventure game from 2019, Days Gone, have announced that they're expanding their portfolio with a brand new IP.
Looks like we'll have to wait a bit longer to see what's going on with Deacon St. John and the rest of the Days Gone squad. Bend Studio, the developer of the 2019 PlayStation 4 exclusive (now available on PC too) have announced via Twitter post that the team is working on a brand new IP.
SIE first-party studio addressed their fans on their Twitter account about the new game, and although they can't share any details yet, they are very excited about expanding their portfolio with new IP.
It goes without saying that fans are both excited and sadden with the latest news, as many of them were hoping for a Days Gone sequel, but at the same time eager to see what's next in line from the talent of Bend Studio.
We are beyond grateful for your support with Days Gone and are truly honoured by the amount of passion our community has shared with us for our world and characters. Your enthusiasm motivates us to continue to improve and create experiences that will last a lifetime. From the Syphon Filter series to Resistance: Retribution, to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Days Gone, we are very excited to announce today that we are expanding the Bend Studio portfolio with a brand new IP. We hope you embark on this new journey with us, and we can't wait to show you what we've been working on.
This news comes after another not-so-happy announcement from Sony, who decided to keep last-gen alive a bit more with the announcement that Gran Turismo 7 and God of War Ragnarok will be coming to both PS4 and PS5, not to mention that GoW Ragnarog is delayed to 2022 (not to anyone surprise), which made some fans of Sony and PlayStation question the recent moves by the company.
In the meantime, the petition at Change.org for Days Gone 2 to happen is at 118k and counting, but looks like it will all be for nothing. At least for now.
