Days Gone, the next major PS4 exclusive which was scheduled to launch on February 22nd, has been delayed until April 26, 2019.
It was originally scheduled to launch on February 22nd alongside Anthem, Metro Exodus, and Crackdown 3. Microsoft has already moved Crackdown 3 a week back to February 28th and now Days Gone sees a two month delay.
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.
As PlayStation fans already know, Days Gone is an open-world action game set in the high-desert of the Pacific Northwest. Traversing harsh landscapes on their drifter bike, players must fight for resources as they attempt to survive broken roads, unpredictable weather, attacks from other human factions, infected wildlife and roaming Freakers — a brutal, dynamic world that is dangerous both day and night.

Frankly, we don’t mind this at all. We’ve been joking about how ridiculous February 22nd was going to be for gamers so we’re happy to see Days Gone come later in the Spring. We’d like to see Crackdown 3 do the same but with Game Pass, it will be easier for Xbox players to experience the title without full investment anyway.
