There have been numerous issues plaguing the development of upcoming game The Day Before.
These problems have led to multiple delays, one of which included a trademark dispute. However, recently the studio did share a new gameplay trailer suggesting the game’s progress is still underway.
Developer Fntastic have claimed negative statements by people have impacted the well being of their staff, through spreading what they’re calling “disinformation.”
As such, they’ve made an official announcement on Twitter responding to such comments.
“We all live in a time of disinformation and lack of fact-checking. Anyone can say anything for views, and everyone will believe it,” Fntastic said. “Disinformation needs to be dealt with as it can harm not only us but also other indies and small/medium studios.”
They added, “It also has a mental impact on the members of such teams. After the release of The Day Before, well think about how to help novice developers deal with fakes and allocate resources for this. Destroying is easy. Creating is difficult.”
Such claims posted by various users online include most notably copying other game’s trailers, as comparisons have shown with their latest release.
These accusations of wrongdoing have caused many in the gaming community to believe The Day Before to be a scam, and that it’s not a real game set to launch at all.
The Day Before is set to launch on November 10th for Windows PC (via Steam) with Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 ports sometime later.
