How about an open world Syphon Filter?
That'd be something new.

you want them to butcher Syphon Filter like Ubisoft did with Tom Clancy games?

RaidenBlack1042d ago

You're comparing Bend with Ubi?
And this concept was somewhat already tried in SEGA's Alpha Protocol in 2010. Though it wasn't much success due to rushed development. But it was wayy before Ghost Recon Wildlands.

We already know that Sony passed on a Days Gone sequel.

EvertonFC1042d ago

They actually said NO to the studios pitched idea not NO to days gone having a sequal? Maybe one day it'll get a second game and certainly can't rule it out but looking fwd to this new game for sure great studio 😊

I'm just glad they didn't close shop after Days Gone. It's really underrated and I want to see what they can do next.

EvertonFC1042d ago

Yep agree also Sony never said NO to days gone 2 they just said NO to the studios pitched idea of DS2 and going off the MP co/op vibe they pitched I'm glad Sony said NO.
I just want the same massive open world single player story continued tbh

The PC release prob made enough money back to keep them afloat. Dangerous territory when ur 5-yr triple AAA game has avg scores and sales on release. I want to try it just havent found time yet.

EvertonFC1042d ago

New concept ffs get it together fella 🙄

Atticus_finch1042d ago

We are going to get DG2 before this gen is over I will hope. But this game isn't it.

Neonridr1042d ago

that would be a terrible "new concept"

Santouryuu1042d ago

@RaidenBlack that was made by obsidian. That's their trademark :D
I'd play a more polished version of that!

Tell us you didn't read the headline without actually telling us you didn't read the headline....

Thundercat771041d ago

Looks like you couldn't even read the title.

I remember Days Gone's reveal and how the media and people were like "it's just another zombie game, lame". Days Gone is still one of the most underappreciated games of last gen. Now it seems that the devs want to try something completely new cause of dumb people who probably never played the game.

Loved it. Live in the region. Don't see that part of the country in media very much

neutralgamer19921042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

Exactly when announced people called it bland and boring and now that Sony gave bend another chances to do a new IP people wants DG2

Army_of_Darkness1042d ago

Just a bunch of entitled whinny B*tches

MadLad1042d ago (Edited 1042d ago )

This is me trying to be fair and objective.
The game sold decent enough. The game reviewed decent enough. But the majority isn't clamoring for a sequel.
I liked the game, but I would rather them try their hand at something different.

A lot on N4G may want a sequel, but many on N4G treat the game as this biased travesty that didn't get its dues, simply because it happened to be one of those Sony backed projects that didn't resonate with people, and got below the reviews Sony exclusives typically get; blaming just a handful of reviews calling the guy a cis white male to blame, when there were multiple stumbles in the overall design, and was buggy even when I played it at multiple patches post launch.

There's definite talent in the studio. It's probably better for them using it towards a new idea.

neutralgamer19921041d ago


It was Sony bends first attempt at a AAA console game in a while so I think whatever they are working in next will be better and more polished. But your points are valid

frostypants1042d ago

Most reviewers didn't play beyond the first three hours or so, and it showed.

neutralgamer19921042d ago

Most reviewers rarely play games till the end

Atticus_finch1042d ago

I don't see how you can rush a game in a few days and enjoy. I always have to take my time.

F0XH0UND9221042d ago

I agree. I played and beat Days Gone 2 times and had an absolute blast both times. The story, while not amazing, was very good and engaging. The leveling and upgrade system was expansive and refined. The gunplay was polished. Hordes were an amazing dynamic to the game. The motorcycle aspect of the game was where it truly shined. As a motorcycle enthusiast myself, it was really fun getting to upgrade and outfit your bike and cruise around the world with non-stop encounters to keep you engaged.

A few minor gripes with character development, lack of player outfit choices, and repetitive scenery were the only issues I had. I wish the game had some more urban areas to explore instead of mostly just counyside and forests. Some clothes options and story refinements would have also pushed further. I would give the game a 9.2/10. Extremely addicting imo.

Bend studio evolution with days gone was huge. It's a good studio. Let's see what's coming
