Techland wants to surprise us with the release date. It might happen.
Previously, we heard about Techland that Dying Light 2‘s development is allegedly chaotic, and it often resulted in the devs working on something, only to be asked to redo certain segments at the final moment. However, it wasn’t official, and who knows what might happen behind the Polish team’s doors? They at least denied the rumour of getting acquired by Microsoft.
„Development of Dying Light 2 is moving forward according to our internal schedule we revised at the beginning of the year. We’ve had a Dying Light 2 vertical slice for over four years. The foundations remain the same since we have started work on the production. However, the natural process for any creative work on the game is the evolution of individual components. This is dictated by factors such as optimization, improvement, or extension of some extremely promising elements,” Tymon Smektala, Dying Light 2’s lead game designer, told TheEscapist. He also denied the PolskiGamedev.pl report (we recapped that in the previous paragraph).
Smektala was also asked whether Dying Light 2 would support the Xbox Series X’ Smart Delivery feature, but he gave a dodgy response, avoiding the subject altogether: „There’s a whole team at Techland that works on the announcement of the release date for the game and every piece of info that accompanies it, and I know they want to surprise players, so I don’t want to spoil it for them or our community. The only thing I can say is please trust us — it’s the last stretch for this project, and we need your support.”
Dying Light 2 is a cross-gen title: it’s developed for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It might be shown either next week during Sony’s event, or in July, during Microsoft’s next-gen program.
