Days Gone PS4 PlayStation 4 1

It won’t come as much of a surprise but it’s worth pointing out on Days Gone’s anniversary: Sony Bend is recruiting heavily for a AAA project, presumably for the PlayStation 5. Its job listings aren’t especially forthcoming, but a post for a Rigging Technical Artist position mentions “cinematic-quality facial articulation” while a Senior Audio Programmer will contribute to the creation of “3D audio”.

Obviously, 3D audio is one of the PS5’s major selling points, although it’s worth remembering that the studio already has experience in this space as it supported the feature in its biker-themed PlayStation 4 open worlder. We’ll probably have to wait a few years to find out exactly what it’s working on, but a Days Gone sequel seems like a safe assumption at this stage.
