Techland’s Dying Light 2 will receive a development update on March 17th, more than a year after its initial delay. Rumors have circulated about management issues and other hurdles, though the studio recently assured that the sequel isn’t in development hell. Over on the game’s Discord (shared by darkghost38 on Reddit), community manager Uncy provided a bit more information on what to expect from the update.
First, he noted that there won’t be a release date announcement. Fortunately, there will be more than just the usual “development is going smoothly” message. “You as the community will have a better understanding of what’s going on and hopefully it will make the wait a little bit easier.” Since there’s no announcement for a release date, there also won’t be any delay announcements, which is a nice way of looking at it.
Uncy also addressed worries of the game being cancelled, which will not be happening. Could there be new gameplay showcased? The cancellation of previous-gen versions? We’ll have to wait for more details in the coming days.
Dying Light 2 is currently slated for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, and will also be a cross-gen title.
