Bend Studio’s take on zombies and motorcycles has been delayed, Sony announced this morning. The game will now release on April 26.
The publisher took the time to explain the reasoning behind the delay as well:
We want to share a change in release date for this highly anticipated title from Bend Studio. We recently decided to move the release of Days Gone from the crowded February timeframe to April 26, 2019. While the studio is eager to see Days Gone in the hands of fans, Bend Studio will take the opportunity to further polish Days Gone.
Considering that the late January/February releases include Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Metro Exodus, Resident Evil 2 Remake, it’s easy to see Sony and Bend’s reasoning.
