PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios’ release line-up: the next wave of PS4 games

We’ve some updates on a number of big upcoming PlayStation exclusives

In retrospect, 2018 has been a banner year for Worldwide Studios, with great games like God of War, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and MLB: The Show, as well as other PS4-exclusive games – each of which demonstrate what makes PlayStation the best place to play.

But the Worldwide Studios team is hard at work. We wanted to give you a status check on the next wave of innovative experiences from our studios in Bend, Oregon; Tokyo; San Mateo, California; London; and more. Each title is as varied as its hometown!

Déraciné

Release date: 6th November 2018

As previously announced, Déraciné from Sony Interactive Entertainment, SIE Japan Studio, and FromSoftware is scheduled for release exclusively on PlayStation VR* this 6th November 2018.

In an emotionally deep narrative, players will take the role of an unseen faerie who forges a personal bond with the children in a secluded boarding school. While moving around the boarding school in frozen time, players will collect and piece together various bits of information that serve to unfold an overarching mystery. Déraciné is the VR debut from Bloodborne director Hidetaka Miyazaki, and FromSoftware.

Days Gone

Release date: 26th April 2019 (UPDATED)

Days Gone

We want to share a change in release date for this highly anticipated title from Bend Studio. We recently decided to move the release of Days Gone from the crowded February timeframe to 26th April 2019.

While the studio is eager to see Days Gone in the hands of fans, Bend Studio will take the opportunity to further polish Days Gone.

As PlayStation fans already know, Days Gone is an open-world action game set in the high-desert of the Pacific Northwest. Traversing harsh landscapes on their drifter bike, players must fight for resources as they attempt to survive broken roads, unpredictable weather, attacks from other human factions, infected wildlife and roaming Freakers — a brutal, dynamic world that is dangerous both day and night.

Concrete Genie

Release timeframe: Spring 2019

Developed by the Pixelopus team at PlayStation, Concrete Genie follows a bullied teenager named Ash who escapes his troubles by painting spectacular living landscapes and mischievous creatures in the walls of his abandoned hometown of Denska. Using a magical paintbrush, Ash discovers his paintings can purify Denska’s polluted walls and bring life back to the town.

Pixelopus, a development studio at PlayStation’s San Mateo campus, is targeting an early 2019 release date for Concrete Genie for the PS4 system. We’ll have more details to share in the weeks and months ahead!

Everybody’s Golf VR

Release timeframe: Spring 2019

Everybody's Golf VR

The hit golf franchise, Everybody’s Golf, makes its PS VR* debut in Spring 2019! Developed by Clap Hanz in association with SIE Japan Studio, players will use the Dualshock 4 or PlayStation Move motion controllers to swing their virtual golf clubs.

PS VR allows players to experience the world of Everybody’s Golf in ways they have never been able to before: getting a better sense of the terrain, reading wind direction to evaluate shots, and more.

We know many of you will want to know about key upcoming titles such as the beta for Dreams, Blood & Truth, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II. The studios are hard at work polishing up these epic PS4 games, but we aren’t yet ready to share a release timeframe. When that news is available, rest assured – you’ll be the first to know!

Days Gone postponed AGAIN ?? Noooo, release it already !!

To be fair, it has 9nly ever had one firm release date. I am happy with the delay if it removes the need for a ‘Crunch’ period.

Official site said Early 2018 followed by Spring 2018 followed buy Late 2018 followed by 22 Feb 2019 followed by 26 April 2019…

And with no real BIKER games out there since the Lost & Damned addon for GTA I’m truly starved for one…

2.3

No real biker games? Clearly someone doesn’t remember the cult classic biker simulator that is Ride to Hell: Retribution!

Happy to see a release window for Concrete Genie

Medievil remake when?

4.1

They announced it too early I think. Why announce a remake like that then go silent. Seems odd

While it’s a little disappointing I’m okay with Days Gone being delayed. There are no shortage of games to play between January and March so if the extra time is used to polish it up nice, it’s all good. Make it great!

5.1

I agree. It’s a new IP and although I think it looks great it doesn’t seem to be generating too much hype. A 2 month delay to release it at a less crowded period maybe on its own in isolation and with extra polish is a good idea

What ever happened to Wild? At this point I’m guessing that games NEVER coming out.

6.1

Especially with the creator working hard on Beyond Good and Evil 2 now.

Really, so you just admitted defeat to a lot of games coming in February? You do know that Crackdown 3 doesn’t even have an actual release date right? Somehow everybody got it into their heads it was out Feb 22nd yet if you look into it for a second you will see it is down as just another future delayed “date” of “Feb 2019”. And Anthem? Nobody is buying that Frostbite garbage. I always say the human character models look like generic crap in that engine and look the same in EVERY game its used in, but at least they fixed it in this one with generic body suits/armour/whatever covering these “characters” faces.

7.1

Its not a battle, nobody is admitting defeat. If Bend wants more time to deliver a better game then I’d say that’s better for everyone wouldn’t you? This is like when everybody said EA was running scared of the busy October when they delayed Battlefield V when the beta revealed a game in desperate need of a delay.

“In retrospect, 2018 has been a banner year for Worldwide Studios, with great games like God of War, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and MLB: The Show, as well as other PS4-exclusive games – each of which demonstrate what makes PlayStation the best place to play.” – WHAT?! Don’t you meant God of War, Detroit: Become Human and Spider-man instead?

8.1

Reading fail.

Quantic Dreams (Detroit) and Insomniac (Spiderman) aren’t part of world wide studios.

Hope this helps.

I have no problem in waiting for the these title, the best thing I picked up from this post that the following are PS4 Games.

“Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II. The studios are hard at work polishing up these epic PS4 games…”

I did read a rumor that this could be next gen… Glad to hear that they are planned for the PS4.

Hmmm Dreams, Blood & Truth, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us: Part II with no definitive release dates.

They sure would make for an awesome PS5 launch lineup.

11

Yep, cant wait for ps5 and the ps5-exclusive FF7 remake. On second thought, it most likely will be a ps6 launch title =)
