In the past couple of days, you may have seen the mock-up of a potential Dying Light 2 Collector's Edition doing the rounds across the internet. Somewhat noteworthy since all Techland has done following the game's indefinite delay in early 2020 was recently promise more news is on the way. We chose not to report on the speculation because retail leaks are always a bit suspicious and more often than not incorrect, but now another online shopping outlet has updated its listing for Dying Light 2. EB Games Australia seems to think the game will be out on 25th May 2021.
Thanks to some internet sleuthing done by ResetEra users, it was determined this new date has been updated from a standard placeholder of "TBC 2021" in the past two days — matching the timeframe in which the supposed Collector's Edition was discovered. When conducting our own check, the launch date now displays the previous wording once again. Should this possible leak prove to be true, it means Dying Light 2 would release in close proximity to Resident Evil Village and Arkane Studios' Deathloop.
Fans were worried whether the game would ever see the light of day after last year's lengthy delay as well as a streak of notable employee departures earlier this month, thus kicking 2021 off with an extra bit of doom and gloom. However, spirits appear to be higher now as these retail leaks hint at what the future could hold for Dying Light 2. Let's hope some official news is shared soon.
I’m surprised we haven’t seen the first one on plus yet. Can’t wait for this though
Guessing the game is finished and they’re just polishing the final product. They don’t need the big names anymore once they’ve nearly gone gold, right? I bet there’s truth to this rumor.
But yeah, too many games lined up for May, because you can add Biomutant to that list now too. But Dying Light 2 will be a day one for me regardless of when it releases. The first game was exceptional.
I'm actually quite glad we haven't heard anything about this game, I get swept up in hype too much and I'm always disappointed.
This is also one of those rare games I could actually buy a collector's edition for, the first game is quite possibly my favourite game of all time.
Can't wait for this, first one was great. Hopefully this is true.
This is the game that I’m looking forwards towards the most. Dying light 1 was an excellent game & absolutely terrifying running around at night. A gem of a game & one the most underrated games last gen.
Cant wait for this one. I will be disappointed if there isnt a ps5 version at launch, though.
I'm looking forward to this but my expectations aren't sky high. with the footage they've shown so far I think the setting doesnt look as interesting as the previous game. And the unneeded addition of a branching story and the troubled development had tempered my expectations somewhat.
Dying Light - The only game that allows you to dropkick zombies and be super satisfying while doing it
If this game isn’t a car crash given the sheer amount of issues that have arisen during development, I’ll be quite surprised.
Better ending than The Following is sorely needed.
I'll see it when i believe it.
