Will Sony give us a Days Gone sequel?

Days Gone Developer Is Officially Working On A New Open-World Game

Sony’s Bend Studio is working on a new open-world game, but unfortunately it’s not going to be Days Gone 2.

When taking part in a Q&A on the PlayStation Blog, head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst revealed that the Days Gone and Syphon Filter developer is working on a new IP.

The announced new IP will be taking inspiration from the open-world of Days Gone as Hulst stated that Bend Studio will “build on the deep open words” set by the post-apocalyptic zombie game.

From the Syphon Filter series to Resistance: Retribution, to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and Days Gone, we are very excited to announce today that we are expanding the Bend Studio portfolio with a brand new IP.

We hope you embark on this new journey with us, and we can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all in for new IPs, as the industry needs them. Though I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t just a little disappointed that Bend Studio isn’t working on a Days Gone sequel. Well, at least in the immediate future.

Fans have been very vocal for Days Gone 2 and surely, it’s difficult for Sony to ignore? In related Days Gone news, the post-apocalyptic zombie game is the latest PlayStation exclusive to be ported to PC.
