Late in August, developer Techland showcased over 26 minutes of Dying Light 2 gameplay from their closed-door E3 presentation and everything about the game just looks fantastic. One of the reasons the original title is so popular and praised is that Techland continued support for the game for several years, dropping new content and updates. Although we don’t have an exact release date for Dying Light 2 yet, Techland has already shared a bit of info on their post-launch plans.

As it turns out, Techland plans to support Dying Light 2 for at least four years. This news comes from Techland’s lead game designer, Tymon Smektala, who spoke to Prankster 101 in an interview. Tymon Smektala explained in the interview that:
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#16EBD0″ class=”” size=”22″]Dying Light 1 was supported for four years after its release, and the plan for Dying Light 2 is exactly the same. We want this game to be supported after its release. We know that a lot of fans will be waiting for DLCs, updates, extra stuff they can get their hands on. And we promise to deliver them just that.[/perfectpullquote]
That’s a great attitude for a developer to have because way too often we see games released and then just left alone, as developers focus on other projects. Later in the interview, it was also revealed that the game’s campaign at launch will take roughly 15 to 20 hours to complete, which doesn’t sound like a lot. However, Tymon Smektala revealed that if you do all the side content, you will get about 100 hours out of the game.
Dying Light 2 is expected to release in early 2020 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. With this news, expect the game to get more content and updates until at least 2024.
