Sony Interactive Entertainment Europe has announced that Days Gone has been delayed by a few months, with the PlayStation 4-exclusive title now scheduled for release on April 26, 2019.

The Sony Bend-developed not-zombie romp was originally set to launch in February, although it was a pretty busy window with the likes of Anthem, Crackdown 3, and Metro Exodus also out that month. The official word however, is that Sony Bend is looking to 'further polish' the game.

Days Gone was first announced at E3 2016, and takes place in a post-apocalyptic US where the majority of folk have been turned into creatures known as Freakers. You control Deacon St. John, a former bounty hunter and biker fanatic who has somehow managed to forge a life for himself in the wilderness. 

Not an awful lot about the game's story has been revealed yet, but Sony Bend has assured players fan the narrative is 'huge part' of Days Gone.

A recent job listing has revealed that Sony Bend is busy staffing up for a new IP.
