Dying Light 2: Release Date Update Coming In The New Year?

After it’s January delay, comments made by a Dying Light 2 developer suggest that a release date might be on it’s way with updates coming in the New Year. Here’s all we know…

Development on Dying Light 2 has been pretty troublesome this year. In June, Dying Light 2 lost one of it’s main narrative writers.

Chris Avellone was removed from the project in response to allegations of “sexual harrassment and disrespect” during his time working on Dying Light 2. Techland, however, offered reassurance that the development was going smoothly.

[Development is] progressing efficiently, according to the plan revised at the beginning of the year.”

Thankfully a message in the Official Discord server, that has subsequently been shared across numerous subreddits, seems to confirm this. The comment can be seen below:

“We’ve been, er, dying to update you all on how development has been going. We’ll have fresh updates about Dying Light 2 coming in the new year.”

With any luck, this will contain the highly-anticipated Dying Light 2 release date information fans are after. Earlier, when Techland announced their initial delay, they stated that they would only share more information regarding the title when they were “truly ready” to do so. This, with any luck, will mean that there won’t be a Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 situation.

Dying Light 2 will be a sequel to the free-running x zombie apocalypse title Dying Light and aim to expand on this title in a number of ways. Reportedly, Dying Light 2 will take place on a map around four-times larger than the original and include a narrative-altering decision-making system.
