Dying Light 2 has been delayed, confirms Techland

Techland has confirmed that Dying Light 2 has been delayed beyond its initial release timeframe of Spring 2020, stating that the company need more development time to fulfil our vision. 

The original Dying Light was one of 2015’s gaming highlights, offering stellar visuals at launch, an engaging parkour system and gameplay which remain fun during the title’s lengthy campaign. With Dying Light 2, Techland plans to deliver gamers more choices, a more engaging game world and even better visuals than before. 

Below is a statement that was released by Techland regarding their game’s delay. 


To our dedicated Community:

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. We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectation of you, our fans. 

Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for your continued support, patience, and understanding. 

Below is an excerpt from Dying Light 2’s Steam page, detailing several aspects of the game and how it innovates over the original. 


You must make tough decisions and hard sacrifices as you decide the fate of a society on the brink of collapse. The effect of the choices you make will have a huge impact on entire regions of the city, uncovering new land masses and areas to explore.


On your journey from humble beginnings to a person of great power, you have unprecedented freedom of movement across the city, seamlessly integrated with brutal first person combat.


In a desperate city, where resources and power are scarce, unstable, and trust in ruling bodies is all but eroded; humankind has reverted to a dark age. Civilization is gone but the relics are still there. This is a violent, primal & unforgiving world – and so are its inhabitants.


The infection has evolved and become more sensitive to UV light. Society exists in the relative safety of sunlight, while the infected hide in the shadows of buildings. At night the infected roam the streets freely searching for prey, presenting opportunities for you to explore areas of the city inaccessible by day.


Play the entire campaign in up to four-player co-op. Host your own games or join other players’ and see how their choices have played out differently to your own and how they have shaped their world differently to yours.
