Days Gone 2 Petition Gathers Over 86,000 Signatures

A petition campaigning for the development of Days Gone 2 on Change.Org has amassed over 86,000 signatures. Following claims of a Days Gone sequel being turned down by Sony, fan outcry for a follow-up has been louder than ever before.

Days Gone 2 Petition Gathers Over 85,000 Signatures cover

Started just two weeks ago, the Days Gone 2 petition has passed 86,000 signatures on Change.org. Demand for a Days Gone sequel has been increasingly gaining steam recently. This has been since Bloomberg stated the game’s developer, Sony Bend, unsuccessfully pitched a second game. Despite making a profit, the 2019 action-adventure horror game’s mixed reception and lengthy development made Sony fail to see continuing the IP as a “viable option”.

What’s more, the petition’s description is short and sweet, giving the call to action that’s made fans sign their name and spread the word amongst the gaming community. 

There’s millions of people who want Sony PlayStation to approve Days Gone 2. 

And I want all the fans to sign this petition

They can’t just pull the plug on such an amazing game that ended with a cliff hanger 

Does such a high level of support mean that a sequel is inbound? Realistically, no. If it reached over 150,000 signatures, the Days Gone 2 petition would become one of the top campaigns on the Change.org site. But, all that shows Sony is that there’s an interest. Unfortunately, the company is not obligated to do anything. If interest does keep building for a Days Gone 2, however, it does give the publisher a sign of potential sales, so never say never. 

What Development Team Members Think

Compared to the positive comments in the above tweet by Days Gone’s lead designer, Eric Jensen, writer and creative director John Garvin was much more frank. In an interview on David Jaffe’s YouTube channel, Garvin commented,

“If you love a game, buy it at f*cking full price. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen gamers say, ‘yeah, I got that on sale, I got it through PS Plus, whatever. Don’t complain if a game doesn’t get a sequel if it wasn’t supported at launch”.

If you wanted to support Days Gone at launch but couldn’t do so back in April 2019, you’ll soon enough have another chance as the game will be finally dropping on PC in May
