Dying Light 2 Delayed to Early Next Year


Techland, the developer behind Dying Light 2, has announced an update on the development process for the game – which has been delayed until February 4, 2022.

The studio shared a statement surrounding Dying Light 2: Stay Human on the game’s official Twitter account and pointed toward the ambitious nature of the project as one of the main reasons for its delay.

“The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line,” said Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka. “It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it,” he continued before announcing that the team had decided to move the game’s official release date back to February.

This isn’t the first time that Techland has announced a delay for the zombie survival game. With an initial release date of Spring 2020, the studio announced in January of last year that it was delaying the game indefinitely. Earlier this year, a subsequent report surrounding the title’s delayed development suggested that a toxic working environment at the studio had been one of the factors that had hindered the project. The game’s December 2021 release date was then later announced in May alongside the title’s new name, Dying Light 2: Stay Human.

Elsewhere in the statement, Marchewka apologized for the title’s most recent delay. “We are sorry to keep you all waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this,” he said.

The CEO then went on to confirm that content creators will still be getting their hands on both PC and console versions of the game next month – meaning that fans won’t need to wait too long before they can see more of what the title has to offer. He then finished by explaining that the company is gearing up towards sharing some further details about Dying Light 2: Stay Human later this month.

Techland’s announcement of Dying Light 2 at E3 2018 revealed a number of exciting features in the game. The developer said that the survival title will present players with meaningful choices that come with real consequences and that you’ll only see 50% of the game’s full content in a single playthrough. More recently, further gameplay has shown off how the game’s parkour elements, both in its use during combat and as a tool to traverse the title’s rugged environment.
