Days Gone's been in the limelight recently after director Jeff Ross claimed that the game already sold 8 million copies since release. While that's since been contested, Ross has shared more information about his tenure with Sony, this time about a project the studio rejected.

As reported by PSU, David Jaffe talked with Ross the former's latest YouTube upload. Ross revealed that during his time with Sony, he pitched an idea of doing an "open-world Resistance game" to the company. Unfortunately, it was shut down pretty quickly.

Ross also spoke about the Syphon Filter reboot which Sony would've opted to use, though he admitted that he didn't know how to do it. Part of his statement reads as:

"Are there any other IPs that we have that we can use? And the only ones we had was Syphon Filter. But honestly I have zero ideas on how to reboot Syphon Filter, I was not interested in that at all. The pitch I was making was open world Resistance (which) would be fucking rad."

This isn't the first time something related to Ross was rejected by Sony. News about Days Gone 2 being cancelled was seen last year after the original Days Gone game had a "lengthy development and mixed critical reception." Make sure to follow us for more gaming news and updates as it happens.
