Days Gone Developer SIE Bend Doubles Employee Count, Gets Bigger Space
Sony's award-winning Bend studio, developer of the upcoming post-apocalyptic third-person survival game Days Gone is moving to a bigger space, as per Gamasutra. It seems that the studio's recent project has more than doubled its number of employees from 45-103. The development team will be housed in a newly built building in the same city. Sony Bend's studio director Chris Reese also states that the studio has a "long-term plan," which could mean that more projects will follow after "Days Gone."

Sony's Bend Studio is made up of a veteran team of engineers, artists, and designers. The studio is responsible for the Syphon Filter series for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation Portable. They were also behind the PlayStation Vita versions of the Uncharted series and the critically acclaimed Resistance Retribution for the PlayStation Portable. Days Gone is the studios first AAA title for the next-gen console. The game is scheduled for a 2017 release but information about the game is still scarce. Maybe moving to a bigger office could hasten the development of one of the year's most anticipated game.
