Unbeknownst to the public, it seems several video game publishers have decided this month to delay their spring releases. The latest game to join the delay frenzy is Techland’s Dying Light 2.
Today, Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka announced that Dying Light 2 will not meet its originally planned spring 2020 release date. The developer stated that Dying Light 2 is their “biggest project to date” and that they “want to deliver exactly what we promised.” In order to fulfill their vision, they need simply need more time.
“We apologize for this unwelcome news,” said Marchewka. “Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards to the expectations of you, our fans.”
A new release date for Dying Light 2 was not given, though we should expect details in the coming months. Hopefully, by not providing a new release date, Techland is taking the time that they need to finish the game rather than crunching to meet a new deadline. And unlike the long-lost Dead Island 2, we’ve seen lots of Dying Light 2 and know that it actually exists. We’ll just have to wait a little longer for it. I’ll be busy with Animal Crossing and Resident Evil 3 this spring anyway.
