In case you missed it
Fntastic co-founders Eduard and Aisen Gotovtsev revealed that The Day Before was going to be delayed even before the trademark issue.
On January 25, the developer announced that the game had been removed from Steam as its trademark had been acquired by someone else. But now it's said that we wouldn't see The Day Before on March 1, the previous release date.
"We planned to move the game's release before and plan to announce it with [publisher] Mytona in a 10-minute gameplay video," Fntastic told IGN. "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."
The team is sure the dispute will be resolved by the date and wants to use this extra time "to better prepare for the release and make the overall improvements for the game."
This is not the first time the game has been delayed, and previously most wishlisted game on Steam is now bombarded with doubt: many believe Fntastic is fooling people and there is no actual game in development.
The co-founders reassure its audience that it's not true: "When the game comes out, people will finally see the truth."
"We didn't take a penny from people: no crowdfunding, no pre-orders, no donations. The game is fully funded by Mytona, one of the largest mobile publishers in the world, who checked the game's build at every milestone per our contract."
The Day Before is an open-world MMO survival set in a deadly, post-pandemic America full of zombies. It is expected to release on PC on November 10 and on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S later.
