The recent delay of Days Gone has fans concerned about the game’s current development status, but industry insiders are assuring the community that the delay was just a matter of business.

In a post on Twitter, industry insider and Androidheadline editor Dominik Bošnjak reported that Days Gone was hitting all its development milestones. Delaying its release was reportedly simply a better business decision, a delay that Bošnjak claims will now put it in early 2019. Twitter user PlaystationBrah substantiated Bošnjak’s information in a follow-up tweet, citing similar claims by Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad.

Under Bošnjak’s initial tweet, one fan speculated as to why Sony would consider it a good business decision to move Days Gone away from its anticipated fourth quarter 2018 release, suggesting that big-name releases like Red Dead Redemption 2 were likely cause for concern. Bošnjak called the upcoming Rockstar Western a “massive factor,” noting that it may also be the cause of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s earlier-than-normal release date. He brushed aside the idea, however, that Sony might be pushing back Days Gone to launch Hideo Kojima’s Death Stranding this fall instead.

While this rationale is believable, Sony has yet to confirm any information about the decision to move Days Gone back a couple months, and Bošnjak would not reveal his source. We do not yet have a confirmed release window for the PlayStation 4-exclusive game, but if Bošnjak’s information proves accurate, we can expect the game to launch sometime in April 2019.

Days Gone wasn’t delayed for the reasons you might think

Sony Bend Studio's zombie game is missing 2018, but that doesn't mean it's behind schedule.
