As Days Gone, Bend Studio's open-world zombie adventure game, came to PC in May, fans had a reignited interest in the IP and its future. With its original PlayStation 4 launch in 2019, Days Gone saw a mediocre amount of critical success - but with time and patches, the game saw more and more people enjoy its world and characters.
When it was confirmed Days Gone 2 was pitched but turned down, fans were upset that Sony wasn't allowing Bend Studio to explore that world further. However, the developers have now confirmed that they're working on another IP altogether, and it's an all-new one, too.
Days Gone has just come to PC. Here are all of the upgrades the game received to transfer to a new platform...
Bend Studio made a new IP announcement on June 3 via Twitter. The studio posted a statement that reads: "We are beyond grateful for your support with Days Gone and are truly honoured by the amount of passion our community has shared with us for our world and characters. Your enthusiasm motivates us to continue to improve and create experiences that will last a lifetime.
"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."
We had heard in the days previously from Sony that Bend Studio was working on a new IP. Hermen Hulst, the head of PlayStation Studios, said in the blog post that "Bend Studio is working on a very exciting new IP that they're very, very passionate about. They're building on the deep open-world systems that they developed with Days Gone. So I'm really happy for Bend Studio." So although this new game is not part of the Days Gone world, it certainly takes inspiration from the tech they developed for it.
We have no idea what this new IP could be, your guess is as good as ours, but we're looking forward to seeing what Bend Studio gets up to.
