This week seems to be heavy with the news of delays for videogames, as Dying Light 2 has also been delayed again.
Dying Light 2 has had some issues since the 2018 reveal, including Chris Avellone leaving the project after his sexual assault allegations. There are rumours of bad leadership, multiple problems with the game, and multiple delays since 2018, as the game is now two years late since it was supposed to come out in 2020.
Then in 2020 January, the game was delayed indefinitely, and again, rumours popped up that the company’s state was abysmal.
In 2021 January, the CEO made some reassuring comments after nearly twenty-two years at the company Pawel Selinger resigned, who was one of the main narrative designers on Dying Light 2 for the last two years.
While new trailers were released in 2021 with some official gameplay trailers, there were no extended previews with the press or any contributors.
Still, an official release date was finally given for 2021, which was in December of this year.
Today Paweł Marchewka released a statement regarding the game that in order to realize their vision fully, they need more time.
The game would be once again delayed, and this time it has been pushed to the 4th of February 2022.
