Days Gone was a huge hit for first-party developer Sony Bend, and now the Oregon-based outfit is beginning pre-production on its next project. Senior Staff Lighting Lead Jeremy Vickery – who led the lighting team on Deacon St John’s debut – revealed on his LinkedIn profile that he’s “now involved in the pre-production planning for our next title”.
Exactly what this will be is up for debate: a sequel to its post-apocalyptic open worlder makes most sense as it was a big commercial hit, but there’s always the possibility the team may turn its hand to something new. Personally, we’d like to see Syphon Filter make a comeback, as there’s a real dearth of spy-themed titles about.
Either way, with some console experience back under its belt after over a decade focused on handheld formats, we believe Sony Bend will be a force to be reckoned with next generation.
