Techland have officially announced that their highly-anticipated zombie action title has been delayed and will now launch on February 4, 2022. The dev team need more time to polish and optimise the game.
Dying Light 2 has been delayed to early 2022, Techland announced via their social media channels.
The team say that the game is complete and now in playtesting phase but they need more time for polishing and optimisation, so player get the best possible experience.
Here's the announcement from Pawel Marchewka, CEO of Techland:
"It has always been our company's goal to build transparent and honest communication with our community, fans and gamers. Every day, we strive to grow in this element.
The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line. The game is complete and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we've ever done. Unfortunately, we've realised for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimise it.
That's why we have decided to move the release date to February 4, 2022."
While the delay will certainly disappoint some fans, we have to say that it's always better to push the release date a couple of months than release the game in an unfinished state.
We all know what happened to another highly-anticipated Polish game.
Dying Light 2 will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
