Although the Nintendo Switch has received its own helping of third-party releases in the past, Dying Light was not one of them. Despite the game releasing before the Nintendo platform, developer Techland went on to state that Dying Light 2 would not be coming to the platform. Instead, the Polish game studio at the time disclosed it will be bringing a surprise to the platform later on.
Instead, it was later discovered to be some of its earlier work: Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. The game was discovered through an ESRB listing before the official announcement arrived for the title. However, the team never went on to address if there is a window for the original 2015 game from Techland. But in a new announcement, the studio confirms a native port for the game is on the way – for the Platinum Edition that is.
Even more, Techland also unveils that Dying Light 2 is now heading to Nintendo Switch. But, the version will only be available through the new cloud initiative on the platform. You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:
This is not the first instance of high-demanding games being ported to the platform. Even more, the coming cloud version is not foreign to Nintendo Switch owners either as well. In the past, we witnessed the announcements for IO Interactive’s Hitman 3 alongside Remedy Entertainment’s Control so far.
Most recently, Techland revealed that the Dying Light sequel is set to release next year in opposition to its 2021 release date. This will be yet another setback for the game’s release since its initial June 2019 reveal more than two years ago. You can read the full report by heading here.
