DYING LIGHT 2 STAY HUMAN Delayed To 2022
Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been boasting some very impressive changes from its previous entry. The previous entry introduced us to a deadly open-world zombie-slaying experience that changed the way we faced the undead from anything to the parkour movement, the day/night cycle that introduced changes to the undead and introduces us to deadlier infected and an overall narrative experience unlike we had seen. The sequel got plenty of in depth look trailers during Gamescom and the devs have been constantly rolling out updates to keep fans in the loop of the progress.
Sadly, as we have mentioned many times, delays have become something of normalcy during the pandemic and the pandemic has affected the progress of many titles as we saw with Battlefield 2042. Its obviously disappointing to hear when one of the most anticipated games is delayed, and today, Techland announced that Dying Light 2 has been delayed to early 2022. CEO Pawel Marchewka provided some context for the major decision in an emailed statement.
“The team is steadily progressing with the production, and the game is nearing the finish line,” Marchewka states. “The game is complete, and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and 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…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.” You can read the whole statement here:
Marchewka continued, mentioning that next month (October), press and content creators will be given access to PC and console versions of the game as Dying Light 2 preview events become more commonplace leading up to the end of the year. He also expressed gratitude for the support and immense fandom, “In the meantime, we would like to thank all of our fans around the world – without your support and feedback, we would never have come so far on this journey.”
Dying Light 2 Stay Human will now release on February 4 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
