Despite the buzz around post-apocalyptic zombie survival games slowly losing its momentum and becoming somewhat of a meme in the gaming community, one of the most anticipated games of the year seems like a blend of The Last of Us with DayZ, as a sort of ‘final form’ to the genre trope. However, the developers have unfortunately had to delay the title…
The Day Before, Steam’s most wishlisted game since Elden Ring launched, has been delayed until March 1st 2023 as the developers switch over to Unreal Engine 5, almost a year later than the originally planned launch date of June 21st 2022. It’s unclear whether the official PC system requirements will be updated to reflect the new engine, as right now they are surprisingly quite forgiving.
“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 developers said. “The transition to a more advanced and adapted open worlds engine, will make the gameplay of The Day Before even more fantastic.”
What do you think? Are you excited for The Day Before? How do you feel about the delay? Do you think it’s worth it to switch over to Unreal Engine 5? Let us know!
