The Day Before has been delayed to November due to a trademark dispute!
The Day Before has been delayed before, and we were supposed to get our hands on it in early March, however, the game has been delayed for an additional period due to a trademark dispute.
The survival game release date has been pushed back to November 10, 2023, due to a trademark dispute recently discovered by the development team, the developer’s statement said, “Steam blocked our game page upon individual request just prior to release, due to the name The Day Before, our game was announced in January 2021. At the time of the announcement, The Day Before trademark was available, and following the announcement, the above person filled out an application to register The Day Before trademark in the United States.”
The developer claims he wasn’t aware of this and only found out on January 19. A lengthy gameplay video was due to be released in late January, but Fntastic has to consult with lawyers first.

Despite the frustrating delay for players, the developer assures that its focus is 100 percent on the game itself and how to provide the best possible experience for those who wait for it.
