The Day Before
The Day Before, a beleaguered zombie survival game that was controversially pulled from Steam due to a copyright dispute, may be making a comeback after all. The developers have applied for a new trademark and promised a Day Before comeback. It appears that the long-delayed zombie game, originally scheduled for March 1, might see the light of day after all.
Originally scheduled for March 1, the release of The Day Before, then known as DayZ, was delayed to November 10, with no further updates since. Now, however, it appears that a new joint-venture between developer Fntastic and publisher Mytona has seen a trademark application for a computer game software called Dayworld.
The issue, however, is that Dayworld is also the name of a series of novels by Philip José Farmer, which could leave Fntastic open to further legal action. There has been no official word from the developer regarding a potential name change or the release date, but with the release scheduled for November 10, it does not appear that there will be another last-minute delay prolonging the release.
The Day Before release date
The original release date was March 1, but was delayed to November 10. There have been no updates since, but the release is scheduled for November 10.
If the game does see a release, it would be a surprising turn of events and potentially a blessing for those looking for a new zombie game to play. While there are many DayZ alternatives, including some great ones like Warface, it would be a shame if The Day Before never saw the light of day. The author has reached out to Fntastic for more information but has yet to receive a response.
