Days Gone 2 on PS5, the petition to convince Sony to almost 80,000 signatures

Days Gone 2 on PS5

The petition launched on in order to convince Sony to make Days Gone 2 for PS5 has reached almost 80,000 signatures: very respectable numbers for an initiative of this type.

If we consider that the petition for Days Gone 2 had reached 16,000 signatures just ten days ago, it goes without saying that the enthusiasm around this situation is mounting evidently.

"There are millions of people who would like the approval of Days Gone 2 by Sony PlayStation ", reads the author's message. "All I would like is that the fans of the game subscribe to this petition."

Of course it is not certain that the initiative will actually convince Sony to take over the franchise: the Japanese house is interested in producing blockbusters capable of sell millions and millions of copies.

Well, apparently Days Gone did not fit this description and even on the critical front it had not impressed, hence the cancellation of the sequel proposed by Bend Studio.

As you will remember, the creative director of the title, John Garvin, also expressed himself on the issue, who during a podcast said in no uncertain terms that if you love a game you must buy it at full price, as it is the only way to really support it. .

Days Gone 2 and new Uncharted for PS5 cancelled by Sony claims report

Days Gone – the chances of a sequel have apparently… gone (pic: Sony)

Sources suggest that developer Sony Bend has had two projects cancelled recently, including a new Uncharted and Days Gone 2.

A damaging new report on Sony’s first party studios, which claims that Naughty Dog is currently working on a remake of the first The Last Of Us, also suggests that plans for Days Gone 2 have been cancelled.

Although the original was less critically acclaimed than most other first party Sony games it was still commercially successful, and it was widely assumed that developer Sony Bend would get to create a next gen sequel.

According to a new Bloomberg article by respected journalist Jason Schreier, that’s exactly what was pitched to Sony but it was turned down, due to the original’s poor critical reception and long development.



This is surprising as Sony Bend is known to be working on a new game and it was recently announced that Days Gone would be ported to the PC, which is hardly a sign that Sony is in any way embarrassed by it.

According to Schreier, one team at Sony Bend was told to help Naughty Dog with a multiplayer game, likely the oft-rumoured The Last Of Us spin-off, and a second was tasked with working on a brand new Uncharted game under Naughty Dog’s supervision.

Supposedly Sony Bend was unhappy at playing second fiddle to Naughty Dog, fearing they would become merely a satellite studio, and a number of developers left, including key senior staff.

Those that remained allegedly asked to be taken off the Uncharted project, which Sony agreed to. The report confirms they are now working on a new game but presumably not one related to either Days Gone or Uncharted.

With Japan Studio as the most public example, the report paints a picture of Sony focusing on an increasingly narrower range of studios and franchises, just as Microsoft is expanding its reach with both.

This inevitably raises more questions on how Sony is handling the transition to the PlayStation 5 and whether it can successfully leverage its first party success from the last generation to the new one.
