Days Gone 2 was not given the greenlight when pitched to Sony, based on a Bloomberg report. Regardless of the unique recreation being profitable and in the end worthwhile, the Japanese large pointed to the lukewarm essential reception and prolonged improvement cycle as a motive to skip on the sequel – which in the end led to the departure of key artistic leads, including long-time writer John Garvin.
The studio is at the moment engaged on a brand new recreation, though it’s needed to struggle for the chance it appears. Based on the article by revered journalist Jason Schreier, one group was assigned to assist Naughty Canine with a multiplayer recreation, which is presumably the upcoming The Last of Us Factions spin-off we all know is in improvement.
One other group, apparently, was set to work on a brand new Uncharted recreation (shock!) which is outwardly additionally in improvement at Naughty Canine. Fearful that they could finally be absorbed into the juggernaut studio, Sony Bend fought to work by itself mission, and has since been taken off the Uncharted recreation 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 all the pieces we’ve heard over the previous 18 months, it is only one aspect of the story. However, now we have utmost religion in Schreier’s reporting, and it’s disappointing to be taught that Days Gone wasn’t profitable sufficient to earn a sequel, as we reckon the group was onto all the pieces.
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 a little bit bit bummed we’ve seen the final of Deacon St John – there was a lot room for enchancment in that franchise.
