Techland has delayed the survival-horror Dying Light 2. No new release date or release window was provided.
The announcement was made this morning on Twitter. The sequel to 2015’s surprise hit was supposed to come out this spring. Now it’s not clear when it will come out. Indeed, it’s conceivable that it could get pushed to next-gen platforms.
Here is the full statement from CEO Pawel Marchewka:
It was a busy year for us as we continued working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what we promised.
We were initially aiming for a spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unofruntately we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We’ll have more details to share in the coming months and will get back to you as soon as we have more information. We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans.
Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for your continued support, patience, and understanding.
Back in August, Techland released an almost half-hour 4K gameplay demo. The demo was shown behind closed doors at E3 2019. You can watch it below:
