Days Gone 2 Plans Rumoured to Have Been Canned by Sony
Rumoured plans for a sequel to Days Gone have reportedly been rejected by Sony, due to the first game’s lengthy development and subsequent mixed critical reception (our review was one of the higher scores the game received). Apparently, Oregon-based team Bend Studio had been concocting Days Gone 2, but its pitch to Sony proved unsuccessful.
That’s according to “people familiar with the proposal,” Bloomberg reports, with one team at Sony Bend assigned to Naughty Dog to aid work on a multiplayer game, and a second team was tasked with work on a new Uncharted title, under Naughty Dog’s supervision. Certain staff members unhappy with the arrangement decided to depart Bend Studio, with fears the teams could be absorbed into Naughty Dog.
