Another day, another delay. After a string of delayed game news, Dying Light 2 is the last title to see a pushback. It looks like Spring wasn’t the best time to make world-altering decisions and kill zombies, who knew?
Techland took to Twitter to share the news, saying “It was a busy year for us as we continued working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly and we want to deliver exactly what we promised.”
The statement continued, “We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months and will get back to you as soon as we have more information. We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans.”

While it’s always sad to see a delay, it is a good reason and given how hyped up Dying Light 2 is with everything shown so far, it’s promising that the team is willing to work a little longer on it to make sure that expectations match up to reality.
We recently had a chance to get up close and personal with some of those game-changing choices during E3, as well as a chance to talk to some of the dev team. You can learn even more about the undead thriller with our previous coverage here, including how many playthroughs it will take to get “everything.”
For more about Dying Light 2 in the meantime:
“The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps – or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living.
“You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.”
