According to the latest article from the Polish website Polskigamedev.pl, Dying Light 2 development is in serious trouble. Apparently, the devs are crunching to fix the issues and describe the game as a "total mess".
Today, a new report about Dying Light 2 from Polish website Polskigamedev.pl claims that the game is currently in development hell while the Techland developers are crunching to fix all the issues and bugs before the launch.
Polskigamedev say that several Techland employees talked to them about the morale in the company, which is currently very low due to many development problems and lack of leadership within the team.
"There is a total mess. The plot direction, gameplay direction, mechanics' fundamental rules change constantly. The morale is at an all-time low because they (boss - editor's note) have absolutely no idea what they are doing. Disorganization at the highest levels is embarrassing, it is still not known what this game should be," one Techland employee said, roughly translated by Google.
Furthermore, the team is seriously concerned about the game's story and gameplay which does not sound fun at all. Apparently, most of the missions in the game are simple fetch quests without any depth or complexity.
"Story won't be good, everything looks to be pretty scripted. Bring this, talk to him, kill here and there. Depth has all but disappeared from Chris' work. He wanted the game to be empathetic, psychologically extensive and multifaceted," the dev said, translated by Twitter user LotteMakesStuff.
The devs also agree that Dying Light 2 probably won't hit its 2020 release date. They say that it would be smart to delay the game to 2021 to try and salvage the production and avoid Cyberpunk 2077's September release date.
Also, they confirm that nobody knows anything about the Microsoft takeover rumours but confirmation could be coming at tomorrow's Inside Xbox event.
