Delays have been a constant presence in the gaming industry for 2 years now. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, developers have found it even harder to do consistent work on a regular schedule. This has caused problems for many studios in the past with poor management.

While some studios refuse to back down and have maintained a stance of releasing a game when it’s finished, many have to contend with harsh realities.

The title has received a lot of praise and attention for its progress. IGN announced the news of The Day Before facing a 10-month delay as they transitioned development to Unreal Engine 5.
