If you expect Days Gone 2, the reports from Bloomberg will not please you. An infighting broke out in Sony studios.
As you know, as we mentioned in a report we made yesterday, there is an internal conflict in Sony’s studios at the moment. Sony uses its small studios to feed star studios, which in some cases causes internal conflicts. There is no good news for Days Gone 2 by developer Bend Studio. According to reports, Sony has rejected the sequel plans.
If you’re waiting for Days Gone 2, don’t wait
A new coming Bloomberg The report includes new details on Sony Interactive Entertainment’s development of first-party games. It has been said that Sony’s focus on blockbuster stellar games has come to the detriment of the “niche” teams within it. The first example of this damage is reportedly Sony Bend studio, whose plans for the Days Gone 2 game were canceled in 2019.
“Although the first game was profitable, its development took a long time and its critical responses were mixed, so Days Gone 2 was not seen as a viable option,” says Bloomberg. Jason Screier claims instead that one team at the studio was recruited to assist Naughty Dog in a multiplayer game, and another team was commissioned to work on a new Uncharted game under Naughty Dog’s supervision. As we understand Sony feeds small studios to big studios.
According to the report, Bend’s developers claim that the studio leader wanted to be removed from the Uncharted project because they feared the studio would be disbanded and are now working on a new game on their own. However, it is said that this internal conflict also resulted in huge divisions. Writer / Director John Garvin and Game Director Jeff Ross, one of the studio’s most important names, announced in December that they were leaving the US-based developer Oregon.
Bloomberg’s report also claims that Naughty Dog was working on a remake of the original The Last of Us game for PlayStation 5. You can read the details by going to the link at the bottom of our news.
