Forums - Sony Discussion - Days Gone delayed to 2019

Funny how the apologists are out in force. It's "OK" when Sony delays a game, because "it will be better" or "the schedule is full".

Anybody else who delays their games, its the end of the world and they should just get out of the business.

Clearly, every developer ends up moving releases to match with completion schedules and to avoid other titles. But all developers/publishers should be given the same latitude.

Props to the moderator for his heavy-handed use of authority. Nevermind the poster has a point. And seriously, is what he said that inflammatory? Chinese dissidents get more leeway than some users in this forum.

OT: 

Honestly, I didn't even know Days Gone had a release window of 2018, guess that detail flew past me lol, although I did sort of expect sometime this year... but considering what we have releasing in the second half of the year, it's definitely a wise move, and I'm fine waiting for it.

I really hope it's a scheduling issue and not a development issue since this game has been in development for a very long time. I am also not sure if it is a good idea to release it close to Last of Us 2 because they are so thematically similar

Agreed. Releasing those two games so close is a recipe for overshadowing. 

OT: Can't say I'm surprised but I'm still bummed, I was looking forward to this one later in the year.

Pretty sure Tlou 2 is going to release in 2020.



Unless the game has the release date down to the day/week/month, I don't consider it having an original release date anyways. Of course I give more stock to developers that tend to make their goals.



There are so many games i've yet to play that I actually don't care.



I dont think anyone needs to be worried about Spiderman.
If anything im pretty sure that always had more chance of releasing this year than Days Gone.

Sony are marketing RDR2, and with that in Oct late Oct and CoDBo4 (maybe they are marketing, maybe they arent) in early Oct, where exactly are Sony going to position this game? November is way too late (and RDR2 eats into that) and a September release could have legs cut off by RDR2.

At the end of the day, regardless of the reason, it should be obvious by now that Sony is more than happy to be on cruise control during holiday period with their marketing deals in place, and then pumping out the majority of their games from Q1 - Q3.

But Spiderman I think will be fine. I hope lol

At this point I'm about 2-2.5 years behind in my games.

Growing up sucks.

No sorry, just a little joke (hope!?) from another thread where I posed the idea and someone hated me for thinking it would be a good idea for the game.

I know right? Nowadays I even tend to stay away from open world games because they slow down things even further.
