Following a report from Bloomberg that indicated that a sequel to Days Gone had been pitched and handed on, former Days Gone recreation director Jeff Ross has seemingly about as open about the entire thing as he legally will be. As a part of a current livestream with David Jaffe, who is understood for his work on the God of War collection, Ross opened up even additional and confirmed that a part of a pitch for a sequel was a shared universe with co-op.
“We wished co-op from the start [in Days Gone 1], however clearly it’s important to make concessions for what you’re not going to have the ability to do,” mentioned Ross at one level as transcribed by VGC. He went on to speak about how this could have been a secondary mode within the preliminary recreation or sequel, and would have been separate from the primary narrative.

“But then take this world that you just’ve constructed, and all these property and techniques, and repurpose them for some kind of equally themed multiplayer model of this universe,” he continued. “So [it] can be with guys like Deacon attempting to outlive, increase a clubhouse or a crew. I believe it will be enjoyable to be in that world cooperatively and see what horde battles might be like.”
When requested whether or not this kind of factor was one thing that might have been in a potential sequel, Ross responded that it was “one of many issues that we had in our pitch, yeah. It was the thought of a shared universe with co-op play.”
