The game was put “on hold” seven years ago.
The long ago cancelled Eight Days looks like it would have been a pretty game, had it managed to see the light of day. The concept art for that game was just released by artist Benoit Godde and it depicts a world we’d certainly like to explore. There is also a rather obvious familiarity with the look that invokes the kind of feel that Fallout 4 in particular has in its game. That’s especially interesting since Bethesda had no fingerprints on this game.
Eight Days was a PS3 game that was being developed by SCE London Studio and was expected to be an action-adventure title that, predictably took place over eight days. The map was also expected to be one of, if not the biggest in a PS3 game, as it was supposed to span eight different states. The title was also said to have a true to life internal clock, which means that if you played the game at night, it would also be night in the game world, if it was dawn, it would be dawn in the game.
In 2008, Sony put what appears to be as close to a permanent hold on the game as there is, saying the fact that it didn’t have an online mode was a big part of the lack of interest in finishing it, according to PressA2Join. While Sony has said it likes the concept of the game, and the title hasn’t actually been cancelled, this is the first we’ve seen of Eight Days for several years.
