Days Gone 2 was not given the greenlight when pitched to Sony, in keeping with a Bloomberg report. Regardless of the unique sport being profitable and finally worthwhile, the Japanese large pointed to the lukewarm vital reception and prolonged growth cycle as a cause to skip on the sequel – which finally led to the departure of key artistic leads, including long-time writer John Garvin.
The studio is at present engaged on a brand new sport, though it’s needed to battle for the chance it appears. In keeping with the article by revered journalist Jason Schreier, one workforce was assigned to assist Naughty Canine with a multiplayer sport, which is presumably the upcoming The Last of Us Factions spin-off we all know is in growth.
One other workforce, apparently, was set to work on a brand new Uncharted sport (shock!) which is seemingly additionally in growth at Naughty Canine. Apprehensive that they might ultimately be absorbed into the juggernaut studio, Sony Bend fought to work by itself mission, and has since been taken off the Uncharted sport as just lately as final month and given the chance to make one thing new. Precisely what that entails stays unclear.
It’s price noting that that is only a report, and whereas it completely aligns with the whole lot we’ve heard over the previous 18 months, it is only one facet of the story. Nonetheless, we have now utmost religion in Schreier’s reporting, and it’s disappointing to study that Days Gone wasn’t profitable sufficient to earn a sequel, as we reckon the workforce was onto one thing.
If this report is correct, although, it’s no shock Japan Studio was shuttered; when large sellers like Days Gone can’t even get a sequel, then what hope did the likes of Siren: Blood Curse have? We’re to see what Sony Bend does subsequent, however we’re slightly bit bummed we’ve seen the final of Deacon St John – there was a lot room for enchancment in that franchise.
