Days Gone Devs Hiring for a New AAA Game, Possibly Days Gone 2?
Sony Bend Studio, the development studio of the exclusive PlayStation 4 game of Days Gone, is hiring a new producer to work on its next AAA title. Within the job proposal, there is no reference to next-gen or PS5, but considering the standard development times for large games, it is highly possible that it is at least a cross-gen product, so the title could be made both for PS4 and PS5.
Moreover, many details on the characteristics of this new title are missing. However, the job description included in the request makes it clear that this is an important project: “We are seeking a Producer who will be relied upon to collaborate with senior producers, creative leads, and studio directors to develop, maintain and execute on project planning for your teams. You are the strategic thinker for your team, get out front and lead. The ideal candidate will possess a combination of project management, communication skills and a passion for making games. Help us create our next AAA title that will set the PS4 apart from the rest!”
Which game could it be? The most common answer is Days Gone 2: the title did not get very high marks from the critics, but the players loved it and so it is already a very solid franchise. On the other hand, we believe that there are many fans eager to see the return of Syphon Filter: could it happen? Difficult, but hope costs nothing.
As you have read, reference is made only to PS4 in the job application, but unless the project is already in development for some time, it is unlikely that it will be ready before the end of 2020, or the period during which it is expected the release of PS5 and Xbox Scarlett.
