PlayStation’s Worldwide Studios Release Lineup: The Next Wave of PS4 Games

Updates on four anticipated upcoming WWS titles, including Days Gone, Concrete Genie, and more.

Asad Qizilbash's Avatar Posted by Vice President, Marketing, SIEA

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, OR; Tokyo; San Mateo, CA; London; and more. Each title is as varied as its hometown!


Déraciné

Release date: Nov. 6, 2018

As previously announced, Déraciné from Sony Interactive Entertainment, SIE Japan Studio, and FromSoftware is scheduled for release exclusively for PlayStation VR* this November 6, 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: April 26, 2019 (UPDATED)

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 April 26, 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 a spring 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

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!

At least they admit February is crowded so I can respect them for that.

    It’s cool to have them admit that, especially for Days Gone. It would’ve gotten buried on Feb. 22 with Anthem alone, not to mention the other games coming out.

Yeah props for actually admitting the delay was due to not wanting to release in an overcrowded month, most companies won’t do that.

While I’ve had Days Gone pre-ordered for quite some time and CAN’T wait for it’s release date…. I certainly appreciate the move and hope that extra time to polish and fine tune pays off for both gamers and sales numbers. Good news is now I don’t have to consider waiting on Anthem. Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Sekiro and Days Gone. That gaming lineup should flow nicely. Poor Division 2, where do you fit in I wonder? But shame on you Bend for cutting into my The Show ’19 game play time. ;) you better apologize to Ramone over at SDS.

    Well that’s good they need all the time they can get cause Days Gone was really broken in all the showings the did this year. It seem Sony was really scare of how bad the game was looking and gave them until February to fix it but then realize that february is really packed and gave them a little extra time. If the game still is a mess by april Bend Studios has no excuse other than just taking a project to big for their studio.

I dont have anything positive to say about Days Gone, only angry curses, thats not how you do business.
Its not the first delay, we are not getting younger, some of us are old.
The worst offense that Sony did and keeps doing is announcing games 2-3 years in advance, it not only kills momentum but angers everyone because people expecting game to come out soon.
Please dont announce games earlier then at least 10-12 months but even better 6 months.
You have E3 to announce all the games that come after E3 and you have PlayStation Experience to announce all the game that come after it and till the E3.
This delay only angered me to cancel the pre-order, I rather buy this game when its on sale, if this is how Sony treats its customers.
Im keeping PS4Pro and PSVR as add-on to my PC [currently 9900K on pre-order and 2280Ti], so every Sony exclusive is when i dust off my PS4Pro, these delays just anger and annoy me, and ruin my gaming schedule.

    You’re crazy if you like a 2 month delay on Days Gone is a bad thing. Not only does this push the game away from a VERY crowed 2/26 release date, but there is now additional time for polish, bug fixes, and performance enhancements, and reduces the chances (or size) of a day one patch.

    Other than Fallout titles, when was the last time that any non-annualized game received an announcement just 6 months?

    XtremeVirus said:

    October 19th, 9:11 am

    There is nothing crowded in that period, i dont plan to buy any games except RE2
    if you use this logic you can delay to infinity, there is always a better window.
    2 month of polish wont change anything, you can only polish for so much, you cant turn a trash into gold in two months period.
    It will be the same game just 2 months later.
    As far a game announcements, most usually do 12 months or if they announce earlier they just announce but dont show anything and show videos when its less then a year to release.
    Sony been showing us same videos for 3 years and not just this game., E3 was a joke.
    If next year they show us TLOU2, Ghost and Death Stranding for the tent time, they will be the laughing stock of the industry, the Only way they can show us these games again if we have hard release day in the end of the trailer.

    Lmao you’re mad at what the gaminf industry has done for decades? You’re nad at a product for a 2 month pushback? Lmao get over yourself if you cant wait two extra months thats on you no-one else cares. Every one else still has rhe same amount of hype for the game, and two monrhs is developement IS alot of time for bug patches, glitches and general quality of life updates. And tf is a gaming schedule, who has one if those just game and when a new one comes out play it when you feel like it youre over here spreadinf negativity for no reason gtfo of rhe comments you sound like a 35yo man whining in his moms basement post divorce over a video game.

Sounds like the dreams beta has been pushed to 2019.

It’s interesting that everyone accepts “moving from the crowded February timeline” like that’s an /actual/ reason – instead of “the game isn’t ready, but we’re making it seem like we’re being considerate of your gaming dollars and doing you a favor holding it back a bit longer.”

Soft launch it on PSN in February, don’t promote it, then do a big promotional public launch at the end of April. Problem solved.

Unless, of course, the game actually needs two more months of development, and THAT’S the real reason.

Waiting for ghost of tsushima should be a great game fully trust sucker punchs work. Days gone and death stranding look good but don’t know if I will pick up day one. Last if us 2 most likely will wait on a sale.

Definitely not mad at them for moving Days Gone to April.

The horible woes of bend and media molecule continue.

bend hasn’t released anything since derivative uncharted vita launch title and molecule hasn’t released a proper title since little big planet 2 on ps3 mainline, and then the tearaway portable game for vita.

that is a really long time to no be able to support a studio as a fan. I mean that about media molecule

sony bend has been rumored ro be struggling for quite some time, and it took them forever to make golden abyss as well. hopefully the game comes good in april, personally i’m seeing it as one of the weakest first party games and i hope i’m proven wrong although i’m not a fan of the genre.

Dreams is an unfortunate head scratcher, maybe better as a ps5 title at this point, even with a small project like tearaway happening i still feel like this is a big missed opportunity. There are not many quality family / children friendly games on the platform at this poimt and media molecule was one of the few that used to deliver that. No i don’t feel the lego games are very good and yes i bought a switch for my son becuase of this fact.

thanks for updating us that is appreciated.

Sony needs to stop announcing games 2-3 years prior to release, or if they do just announce a title is in the works, ie god of war 2 coming to ps5.

seeing the same videos at consecutive e3s and the same preorders year after year then finaly waiting and having things being delayed is off putting.

Bethesda in theory with their hey this is what’s coming out this holiday plan is more exciting, especially as they are one of the few that aren’t annualizing all their titles.

1 year -6 months would be better, core gamers could evangelize and games marketing (i mean journalism lol) could generate a better clicks cycle.

this E3 was rough as a sony fan, showed me the same 4 games as last year, wow last of us is sooo violent wow… death stranding i still don’t know what the game is, ghosts could be good great looking environments and wow ghosts is sooo violent.

spiderman came out and delivered on the very first trailers, i like it and my son loves Spidey. nintendo spent an hour showing me deluxe ultimate smash port.

i was pretty underwhelmed, there is a better way to announce and promote these games. Just saying as og core gamer since psx era.
