Dying Light 2 release date pushed out of 2021
Dying Light 2 is going to miss its previously announced December release date, developer Techland has revealed.
In a message posted to Twitter, Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka announced that the decision has been made to move the game’s release date from December 7th, 2021, to February 4th, 2022. The reason for the delay is to give the development team more time to polish and optimize the game.
“The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line,” Marchewka wrote. “The game is complete and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it.”
Marchewka added that the team has “some exciting news about the game” to share later this month. Read the full statement below:
Dying Light 2 is now scheduled to launch on February 4th, 2022, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
