Many publishers in the industry would have seen Days Gone as a success. This is thanks to its large and loyal fanbase, impressive sales and improvements made by update post launch. For Sonyapparently this was not the case. A recent report revealed that while SIE Bend Studio was planning the development of the second chapter, Sony has it deleted. The decision would have been made following the responses of enough criticism lukewarm (Days Gone’s rating on Metacritic stands at 71).

Days Gone appears to be an exception and, in this, Sony Bend suffered from it consequences. Second John Garvin, lead writer and creative director of the title, the Metacritic vote is taken seriously by Sony. In fact, Garvin stated that both the cancellation of the sequel and his own departure shortly after the game’s release, they are due to this reason. Ultimately, expressing harsh words towards the Japanese company, Garvin argued that “if you are a creative director and you are working on a title, if that title will have a Metacritic of 70, You will not be creative director of that franchise for a long time ”.
