Techland has also pushed Dying Light 2 game back. Is this a trend in January?
It’s starting to become ridiculous: Final Fantasy VII Remake (episode one, a one-month delay), Marvel’s Avengers (3.5 months), Cyberpunk 2077 (five months), Marvel’s Iron Man VR (2.5 months). We barely moved into 2020 three weeks ago, and we have five bigger games getting delayed! Here comes #5: Techland’s Dying Light 2, which already got pushed back to the Spring of 2020!
„To our dedicated community: 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. We were initially aiming for a spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfil 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. Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for your continued support, patience, and understanding,” Paweł Marchewka, Techland’s CEO says in a statement.
We think Dying Light 2 could be one of the launch titles of the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X. And we don’t know when these consoles will launch. They already said it’s going to be a next-gen game. If it does launch in the Autumn, then it will have to face many major titles. A few games jumped out of Spring (Marvel’s Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077), so it could have been financially reasonable to stay in the Spring unless Techland does need more time to put the game together.
Dying Light 2 is out at an unknown date on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. We suspect the PS4/X1 versions getting shafted in favour of a PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X version. We’re just guessing, though…
