Days Gone Rides Off the PlayStation And Onto The Big Screen

Screenplay by Oscar-nominated Sheldon Turner; Outlander’s Sam Heughan in the running for the lead role

Days Gone, the highly acclaimed open-world action game where players battle vicious zombie-like creatures is the next Sony game that’s coming to the big screen.

As reported by Deadline, the Days Gone movie will be written by Oscar-nominated Sheldon Turner, with Sam Heughan – who plays Outlander’s Jamie Fraser – reportedly in consideration for the lead role of Deacon St. John. The film will be a “love ballad to motorcycle movies” in a post-pandemic “modern-day western”.

Jennifer Klein and Turner’s production company, Vendetta Productions, will produce the Days Gone movie whilst Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan will produce on behalf of Sony PlayStation Productions.

Days Gone is the company’s newest adaptation after the previous announcements for Horizon Zero Dawn (Netflix), God of War (Amazon Prime), and Gran Turismo which is scheduled for release on August 11, 2023.

PlayStation on PC

Sony has added a new page on its PlayStation website that’s solely dedicated to its games for PC. Games currently listed as coming soon include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves collection. The PC release for Miles Morales is scheduled for “Fall/Autumn 2022″, while Uncharted is still set to launch this year with no precise date except “2022″.

In a recent investor meeting and as reported by Eurogamer, Sony stated that it expects close to 50 per cent of its game releases to be PC and mobile come 2025. In addition to that, the company revealed that it expects to make a steady $300 million on PC games alone this fiscal year.
