Dying Light 2 Will Be Supported For At Least 4 Years Post-Launch
Earlier this year, Dying Light 2 developer Techland revealed that the upcoming sequel with feature several games worth of content, something the studio had been striving for since early on in the title’s development. On its own this is an impressive endeavor, though one concern that comes to mind is what the plan is after Dying Light 2 launches. How much new content will be trickled in after the game’s initial release? Thankfully it appears that we’ve quite a lot to look forward to, as it has been revealed that Dying Light 2 will be supported for at least 4 years after the game releases next year.
In a recent interview with the Prankster101 podcast, Dying Light 2 lead game designer Tymon Smektala confirmed that the game will be supported as long as the original title was after it launched. “Dying Light 1 was supported for four years after its release, and the plan for Dying Light 2 is exactly the same,” Smektala said.
We want this game to be supported after its release. We know that a lot of fans will be waiting for DLCs, updates, extra stuff they can get their hands on. And we promise to deliver them just that.”
Smektala also spoke a bit about the length of Dying Light 2, revealing that while the campaign itself will only take 15-20 hours, there’s plenty more content to work through. “[The game can be completed in] 15 to 20 hours. It is very hard to measure in an open-world game. How long it actually takes to complete the game because of the things that happen between points A and points B of a quest, so basically, it’s up to you how you play it,” Smektala said. “Also in a game like this, there are a lot of emergencies. Things just happen as you play the game and you have to react to them. But it is 15 to 20 hours for the main story, because the whole content I would say is more than 100 hours.”
Dying Light 2 is slated to release during the first half of 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
