You may have missed this particular PS4 title, but it seems that a lot of people didn’t, and now there may be some hope for a sequel. Days Gone 2 might be a thing at some point according to Chris Reese, who gave an interview with Games Radar and hinted at the project. The original Days Gone slipped right by a lot of people, but fans definitely enjoyed the superb zombie-slaying combat and enjoyable motorcycle gameplay. Of course the excellent story helped propel the game to success as well.
Sony Bend studio director Chris Reese revealed the possibility of a sequel recently. “Oh yeah, it is certainly a passion of ours, and that’s what we’ve always wanted to do,” Reese said. “This is a world that we want to keep breathing more life into, and explore many, many different avenues. So who knows, we’ll see!”
Chris Reese also spoke positively about the fan reception to the story-driven zombie title. According to him, fan reception was a huge positive payoff for the team behind the game: “It’s awesome, because there was so much dedication and hard work from the team, and this is kind of the final payoff for that. To see the players actually engage with the game and really enjoy the passion that we put into it, to see that come back, it’s awe inspiring.”
And according to some additional sleuthing by Games Radar, some members of the Days Gone team have already moved onto other projects. While this does not confirm Days Gone 2, it does lend some credence to the speculation about the sequel if you operate under a pretty big assumption. Whether these rumors turn into anything new for Deacon St. John, we will have to see.
Days Gone is out now for the PlayStation 4, so if you haven’t played it yet, why not add it to the list of games you should check out. And since the game recently got a New Game+ mode, there’s some reason to return if you played it already.
