Dying Light Has Been Delayed Indefinitely

Another video game has been delayed this year.

Open-world zombie game Dying Light 2, a sequel to the original 2015 hit game, has become the latest game to be delayed this year. The game’s developers, Techland, announced the news on Monday, revealing that the game wasn’t going to meet its original release date.

Dying Light 2 was set for a release in Spring 2020 but has been pushed back to give creators additional development time. Announcing the news on Twitter, the Dying Light 2 Twitter account shared an image of a statement from Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka. The statement reads: “It was a busy year for us as we continued working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what we promised.

“We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfil our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.”

It continues: “We apologise for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans. Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for your continued support, patience, and understanding.”

Unfortunately, Marchewka’s statement didn’t include a new release date but did remain positive that fans will receive more information in the coming months as development continues.

The game, which was announced at E3 2018, is being developed for PS4, Xbox One, and Windows. It’s set 15 years after the original game following the outbreak of the zombie virus in the city of Harran and players take control of Aiden Caldwell as he parkours across the city and tackles zombies with melee weapons.

2020’s Video Game Delays

The news comes days after several other video games were delayed. Yesterday, we reported that game developer Camouflaj had delayed the upcoming Iron Man VR game from February to May.

Last week, CD Projekt Red announced that its eagerly awaited Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed until September and reports have claimed that the game’s multiplayer mode will not be playable until after 2021.

Also delayed was Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers which was due for a release in May. However, the game was pushed back to September in order to give the game’s creators more development time.

The upcoming Final Fantasy VII remake has also been delayed. The news was announced last week by producer Yoshinori Kitase who revealed that the game was pushed back from February to April.

Finally, Naughty Dog’s highly anticipated The Last Of Us Part II is set for a release in May after it was announced in December that the game had been delayed several months to give developers more time.
