The Day Before gets a delay

Although earlier performances of this hybrid of The Division and The Last of Us looked promising, both in terms of gameplay and graphics, developer Fntastic decided to move development from four to Unreal Engine 5, and thus postpone The Day Before for next year.

The statement, via IGN, reads: "Millions of people have added The Day Before to their wishlist, making The Day Before one of the most anticipated games in the world. "Feeling and understanding the great responsibility that we face, with enormous gratitude in our hearts, we're pleased to announce that The Day Before is switching to the new Unreal Engine 5 technology!

The transition to a more advanced and adapted open worlds engine will make the gameplay of The Day Before even more fantastic. "In this regard, we inform you that the new release date of the game will be March 1st, 2023." The Day Before we were supposed to play in less than two months.

Instead of 21 May, we will play it on 1 March next year, and the developers justify the decision to postpone it by promising that the transition to a more advanced engine will make the gameplay of The Day Before "even more fantastic".

The Day Before is a gritty open-world MMO, aiming to mix survival gameplay with in-depth combat, vehicle gameplay, and even social elements inspired by the likes of Animal Crossing.

An unusual decision

It is unusual for decisions like this to be made two months before the release, which points to probably some major development problems that Fntastic is silent about.

However, the fact is that The Day Before is one of the most anticipated titles of today. This is clearly indicated by the top wishlist on Steam, where The Day Before sovereignly holds first place ahead of Starfield, Stalker 2, Uncharted Collection, Forspoken, the new Plague Tale… So, in the post-apocalyptic world of The Day Before, full of zombies and even more dangerous other players, we are playing on the PS5, XSX / S, and PC on March 1, 2023.
