It was at E3 last year that developer Techland alongside Square Enix that will publish the title announced the upcoming parkour, zombie killing experience will be arriving this coming spring. And while the game has still yet to arrive currently waiting in winter of the new decade, Techland unfortunately shared that the wait will be exceeding the initially slated timeframe.
According to a post made on the official Dying Light Twitter, Techland disclosed that the game will in fact be delayed, but it is uncertain when the new launch can be determined as cited from the letterhead.
“We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.”
Despite the abrupt push for the anticipated sequel, it is reassuring that the team would utilize more time on the game’s development to ensure satisfaction for both the consumer as well as towards their standards. Going off a hunch, it was odd seeing the project scheduled for this spring after watching the demo that went up following the release date announcement. While there are evident improvements in the gameplay alongside story from the short glimpse, there were some traits that paint this game for next gen as also which rubbed the wrong way in my opinion.
Additionally, Techland has been juggling between other projects aside from Dying Light 2. Most recently, the team just debuted a crossover event with Valve to introduce a slew of Left 2 Dead 2 items which were available for a limited time last year. The developer also released their previous title Call of Juarez: Gunslinger through a port for the Nintendo Switch.
Will be patient enough to wait until more detail is release for Dying Light 2?
Dying Light 2 is scheduled to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
