In parallel with the development, Techland’s CEO reminds us that they will continue to add content to their latest zombie adventure, Dying Light 2.
The Dying Light franchise has been a massive success with fans of the zombie experience, with both the first instalment and the latest sequel selling millions of copies. Following this financial boost, Techland set its sights on exploring other types of adventures and began the development on a new, unannounced game.
“We’re looking for collaborators for an unannounced AAA open-world RPG set in a fantasy environment” – Techland
That’s what we see in Techland’s latest Twitter post, in which they explain that they are looking for collaborators for “AAA open-world action-RPG in a fantasy setting.” Alongside the tweet, the developer also posted an early visual design, which, alongside the dream-like setting, includes the phrase motivating people to apply for the job: “Let’s build a new and exciting world together!”
Techland’s post doesn’t reveal any further details about the title, but Game Informer points to some of the personalities involved in the development, including former CD Projekt RED staffers Karolina Stachy (narrative lead for The Witcher 3’s The Bloody Baron mission), Arkadiusz Borowik (narrative lead for the same game) and Bartosz Ochamn (open world director for Cyberpunk 2077).
Dying Light’s studio also highlights other professionals who have contributed to the title, such as Kevin Quaid (animation lead on Horizon: Zero Dawn), David McClure (lead designer on Deathloop), Mario Maltezos (creative director on Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) and many others.
“We want to create a fully next-gen experience,” said Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland, in the press release.
“A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity. While we cannot share more details about this project now, we’re all truly invested in it and looking forward to showing it to gamers when the time is right.”
In addition, the CEO used the press release to remind us of their continued support for Dying Light 2: Stay Human, for which they intend to continue to provide content for five years (!). For now, fans of the game can look forward to a busy month of May, but they will have to wait a little longer for the story DLC, as the release has been delayed. In addition, the company recently made the enhanced version of Dying Light accessible, which means that those who never purchased The Following DLC can now access it for free.
