Yesterday, it was announced that Ghost of Tsushima has sold over 8 million copies worldwide since it was released last July, a milestone that Sony and developer Sucker Punch have always been proud of. However, did you know that Day by day also sold quite well? That’s what the game’s director wants you to know.
Put it on Twitter, Days Gone director Jeff Ross noted that Bend’s title sold as well as Ghost of Tsushima, but Sony made the team feel as if the sales weren’t good enough.
“At the time I left Sony [in 2020], Days Gone has been out for a year and a half (and a month) and has sold over 8 million copies,” Ross said. Since then, it went on to sell more, and then a million copies on Steam. The local studio management always made us feel it was a big let down. ”
Ross went on to say that the studio was “planning to build upon the original for a kick-ass sequel,” which is Reported by Sony due to the mixed critical reception of the first game.
According to a Blomberg report from last year, instead of a sequel, the studio was tasked with making a new Uncharted title. This led to a small-scale exodus at the studio as many employees feared that the studio would be reclassified as Naughty Dog at some stage.
The launch of Days Gone received mixed reviews from critics, but has since found a soft spot in the hearts of the general gaming audience – especially on Steam, where it has rave reviews. very active” from players. Critically, the game currently has a Metacritic rating of 71, which Ross said doesn’t make much sense as to whether a sequel is warranted.
“Even the first part Killzone got a score of 70, but the sequel came back with a score of 91,” he said. “You have to crawl before you can walk and walk before you can run.”
