Techland’s Dying Light 2 is one of the major releases that was meant to arrive this Spring. That is until the developer delayed it for the sake of more polish. Since then, reports have emerged of troubled development which Techland had refuted. In a follow-up interview with The Escapist, senior PR manager Ola Sondej and lead game designer Tymon Smektala offered a bit more clarity on the game’s current state.

Echoing statements made earlier this month, Sondej said, “Development of Dying Light 2 is moving forward according to our internal schedule we revised at the beginning of the year.”

“We’ve had a Dying Light 2 vertical slice for over four years. 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.”

Can fans expect the project to release this year? With the Xbox Series X out this holiday season and Dying Light 2 being a cross-gen title, will it have Xbox Smart Delivery support to ensure Xbox One players get a free next-gen upgrade? Smektala didn’t answer the part about Smart Delivery but did say that the project is in its “last stretch.”

“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. The only thing I can say is please trust us — it’s the last stretch for this project, and we need your support,” he said.

Dying Light 2 is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Details on PS5 and Xbox Series X versions have yet to be provided. Stay tuned for more updates in the meantime.
