'The Day Before' Developer Shuts Down Mere Days After Early Access Launch

The Day Before is an open-world MMO survival set in a deadly, post-pandemic America overrun by flesh-hungry infected and survivors killing each other for food, weapons, and cars.

The Day Before offers players a uniquely reimagined journey into post-apocalyptic open-world MMO survival set in the present day on the US East Coast following a deadly pandemic.

You wake up alone in a world you no longer remember, setting out to find answers and the resources to survive.

While the game will remain online for the time being, developer Fntastic announced it is shutting down.

"Today, we announce the closure of Fntastic studio. Unfortunately, The Day Before has failed financially, and we lack the funds to continue. All income received is being used to pay off debts to our partners.

We invest all our efforts, resources,  and man-hours into the development of The Day Before, which was our first huge game. We really wanted to release new patches to reveal the full potential of the game, but unfortunately, we don't have the funding to continue the work.

It's important to note that we didn't take any money from the public during the development of The Day Before, there were no pre-orders or crowdfunding campaigns. We worked tirelessly for five year, pouring our blood, sweat and tears into the game.

At the moment, the future of The Day Before and Propnight is unknown, but the servers will remain operational.

We apologize if we didn't meet your expectations. We did everything within our power, but unfortunately, we miscalculated our capabilities. Creating games is an incredible challenging endeavour.

We're grateful to everyone who supported us during these difficult years. It's been a fantastic journey over the past eight years.


Key Features:

  • SURVIVE AT ALL COSTS: Search abandoned vehicles, houses, and skyscrapers as you scavenge for resources.
  • ENTER PLACES NO ONE ELSE DARES: Crush the infected and other players with realistic weapons, becoming a legend of the new world.
  • DISCOVER THE VAST POST-PANDEMIC WORLD: Explore beautiful yet dangerous places with stunningly detailed vehicles.
  • FIND A COLONY OF SURVIVORS: Take part in the restoration of the former society before it's too late. In the survivor colony, you can sell your loot and communicate safely with other players.

The Day Before is coming to PC (Steam) in 2024, followed by PS5 and Xbox Series X|S at a later time.
