It's been quite a while since we last heard anything concrete about Dying Light 2, hasn't it? The sequel was delayed indefinitely at the very start of this year, before even the coronavirus pandemic took hold, and since then we haven't had any new gameplay or even a new piece of information. Rumours of problems in the workspace and a Microsoft acquisition did the rounds back in May, but these were very quickly shot down. And so nine months after that initial delay, it's understandable to question what exactly is going on with the project.
While we don't have any new info on the title itself to share, it has been confirmed to us that Dying Light 2 is still very much in development and working towards a new internal schedule. We reached out to Techland, with Ola Sondej, senior PR manager at the company, stating: "The Dying Light 2 development is moving forward according to our internal schedule we revised at the beginning of the year."
Following the pushback at the beginning of 2020 out of a Spring release window, many assumed that this was because the developer wanted to launch alongside the PlayStation 5. However, less than two months away from the next-gen console's release, that appears to be very much not the case. This is now shaping up to be a 2021 title that will surely lead with the PS5. A version for the Japanese giant's next system has been confirmed, after all.
Are you still excited about Dying Light 2, or had you completely forgotten about it given how long it has been since any news was shared? Survive the apocalypse in the comments below.
there has to be issues - hopefully it will be released on next gen so no compromises. Dying Light was my favourite game this gen and cant wait for more 1st person parkour in the sequel.
My hype was there but went away, just like Cyberpunk after the delays but it will come back right before release.
@RIGORR_MORTIS People do care about Dying Light 2, including myself.
I remember the first dying light was also suppose to be cross-gen with PS3/PS4. They eventually scrapped the last gen version in favor of the newer systems.
I wonder if they’re experiencing the same scenario with Dying Light 2. Either way, I’m very much looking forward to it. Absolutely loved the first one.
@rockertherockgod for me dying light was the most underrated game this gen & also one of the best games aswell. Fanstastic fun & absolutely nuts playing it at night.
This is one of my most anticipated games.
Wow I had totally forgotten about this, loved the first one, hopefully we get this soon, will be great on the ps5 with the 3d audio
Loved the first one. Co-op was just so much fun. Happy to wait until they get it right.
It's now called Total Dark 2 😁
As a huge fan of the original I am glad they are not releasing it during a very crowded window. I keep hearing rumours of internal problems.
I hope they are just that though and dl2 is as good as the first.
Time this game comes out, all games will cost $80.
😁👍-I personally loved the original Dying Light and can't wait for this one!
I think they go too ambitious with permanent environmental change.
Dying Light was a fantastic game and was super hyped for the sequel but to be honest I forgot about it!It will still be a Day One though.
Yes. The very most important reason I pre-ordered my PS5 is for Dying Light 2. I will also buy a headset, that like dying light, I only used for one game.
it seems obvious they've had some issues. i certainly want it on ps5 but i've kind of taken the "i'll get excited when i hear something" stance for now.
Can’t think of too many big titles delayed this much. It’s been in development hell for years now!
First game was fine but man does it have issues with its story and characters. Gameplay and parkour were great but could definitely be improved which DL2 demo showed thankfully.
Ignorant much? Just because you don't care doesn't mean the rest of us don't
I am absolutely wanting dying light 2 just like I wanted island 2 but sadly that seems to of passed us by. I really do hope dying light do come out though coz it certainly looks very good
Really looking forward to this. Bummer about the delay
