Bend's Days Gone, which was due to release in February, has now been delayed to April, 2019. As Sony revealed today on the PS Blog, Bend's open world zombie game will now release on April 26, 2019.
Originally meant to release on February 22, Days Gone would've launched the same day as BioWare's Anthem, and Deep Silver's Metro: Exodus. "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," reads the announcement from Sony.
This isn't the first time Days Gone has been delayed. It was originally moved out of a 2018 release window, before settling on the packed first quarter of 2019 with a February 22, 2019 date. The delay definitely moves Bend's game away from the competition, as it'll now release in the month following Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Devil May Cry 5.
