Marking the fourth major triple-A video game release to be delayed this month alone, Dying Light 2 will not make its Spring 2020 release window and has been delayed indefinitely. The news comes from the developers at Techland that revealed on Twitter they need more time to work on the experience.
The press release stated that the team are busy working on their biggest project to date and even though fans are eagerly awaiting the game, it won’t make its original release window.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#FF0000″ class=”” size=”21″] 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. We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standard and to the expectations of you, our fans.
Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for you continued support, patience, and understanding.
The news comes after three video games suffered delays earlier this month including Final Fantasy VII Remake, Marvel’s Avengers and of course, Cyberpunk 2077. Techland’s zombie game was looking great the last time the studio revealed gameplay footage of the open-world action RPG late in 2019. The game features a heavy choice-based narrative that affects not only the story but the gameplay, world around you and even enemies.
We know the Dying Light 2 will also be headed to next-gen hardware including the PS5 and Xbox Series X but we are not sure if it will be delayed or ready for the holiday 2020 release of both consoles.
