Dying Light 2 Development Is In “The Last Stretch,” Says Techland
Fans have been anticipating any sort of news regarding the next Dying Light title for quite some time, especially after it was revealed that the developers needed a bit longer to work on the game and would not meet the expected spring 2020 release. That said, it would appear that development has been going well since then as Techland is now in “the last stretch” when it comes to Dying Light 2.
During a recent interview with The Escapist, lead game designer Tymon Smektala and senior PR manager Ola Sondej discussed the development of Dying Light 2. They touched on a few topics, including a report that claimed the game was in trouble due to issues at the studio. They refuted this claim, stating that they even offered details about the situation, but the report had not used all of them. In addition to this, they noted how development on the game is coming along swimmingly according to their internal schedule.
“We’ve had a Dying Light 2 vertical slice for over four years,” Sondej said. “The foundations remain the same since we have started work on 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.”
As for when fans can expect to see Dying Light 2 released, we may still have to wait, but possibly not for long. “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,” Smektala said. “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 currently in development for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with specific details about the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions remaining unknown at this time.
