Techland has announced Dying Light 2 sold five million copies in its first month of availability across all platforms. The game came out on 4th February 2022, so it's now been out for close to three months. As a result, overall sales are more than likely much higher now. The publisher also revealed the original Dying Light game has surpassed 20 million units sold. First released for PlayStation 4, it recently got a PS5 patch.
To celebrate, Techland will share new Dying Light 2 content next week that includes "some highly requested features" from the community. For example, we already know New Game+ is on its way at the end of this month. Speaking in a press release, CEO Pawel Marchewka said: "The success of the Dying Light franchise is a great example of the unforgettable experiences we create for our players." The sequel was a fairly good follow-up to the 2015 original, as detailed in our Dying Light 2 PS5 review.
"Dying Light 2 is a super solid follow-up to the 2015 original, building upon its fantastic gameplay loop with new traversal options for even more parkour fun. It's extremely disappointing, however, that the narrative and open world promises Techland made in the lead up to launch haven't been realised. Your choices don't have nearly as much impact as we would like, and the map is much more rigid than pre-release footage would have you believe. Still, Dying Light 2 feels awesome and empowering to play, and that can go a long way," we concluded.
