Days Gone Directors Depart PlayStation’s Bend Studio

In some unexpected news out of one of PlayStation’s key studios, both the Game Director and Writer/Director of Days Gone have departed Sony Bend Studio.

Jeff Ross was one of the most well known senior leads at Bend. He was the Game Director for Days Gone, and has experience on classic PlayStation franchises such as Syphon Filter, Resistance, and Uncharted. He posted the following message about his departure. Rumor has it that he may be headed to NetherRealm Studios.

John Garvin meanwhile, was a Director and also the Writer of Days Gone. According to his post, he actually departed Bend over a year ago but simply couldn’t announce it at the time. He followed with a thread that you can read by clicking on the Tweet.

Our Take

This is surprising news. With the growth of PlayStation Studios, and Days Gone supposedly becoming a series for PlayStation, it’s a peculiar time to lose a Game Director and Writer. While we don’t believe the game performed as well critically as may have been hoped, it has acquired a dedicated fanbase since its release. We’re unsure if something else occurred behind the scenes, but regardless, we wish Jeff and John nothing but the best in their future endeavors.
