The Day Before Launch "Was Planned To Be Moved" Anyway And "Will Definitely See Release"
Despite the rumors and allegations that the game wasn't being made, the devs state otherwise.
Fntastic, the developer behind the open-world zombie MMO The Day Before that was first announced in January 2021, explains how they planned a delay even before the trademark dispute came to light.
"We planned to move the game's release before and plan to announce it with [publisher] Mytona in a 10-minute gameplay video, and then you all know what happened. So to be on the safe side, to ensure there are no more transfers, we, along with the publisher, chose November 10. That is a safe date, given the trademark dispute." Explained Fntastic co-founders Eduard and Aisen Gotovtsev in their interview with IGN.
Despite the delay issued by the trademark dispute, Fntastic is confident that the dispute will be taken care of before the new release date, mentioning their “strong legal partners”. In fact, they seem so confident that they even mentioned using the extra time to “better prepare for the release and make the overall improvements for the game. It will become even more polished, optimized, and content-filled."
The devs also wanted to stop the rumors that The Day Before isn’t actually in development that have been spinning on the game’s Reddit page as well as their Discord server. "For us and millions of people, The Day Before is a childhood dream come true. It’s a game with zombies and other people in a huge post-apocalyptic skyscraper city,” they said. "We understand that some players, not seeing the whole picture, might have doubts about the game. Our whole focus has always been on the product itself. We’ve been creating the game for four years. All these years have been full of sweat and blood to make this game, and for many members of our team, it is unpleasant to hear such accusations.”
"We only believe in the final product. No matter what anyone says, you’ll see for yourself on November 10 this year. We hope that after the game's success, we’ll give people faith that in this life, if you persevere toward a dream, it will come true, despite all the obstacles and doubts."
For players that have doubts, maybe The Day Before devs are planning to release something as their Twitter just announced "More news very soon. Stay tuned."
More news very soon. Stay tuned.
