The sequel to Techland’s Dying Light has been delayed.
Dying Light 2 is the latest high-profile title to be removed from the Spring release season at the last minute.
Dying Light 2 was originally scheduled to release sometime in Spring 2020, but those plans have now changed according to a recent Twitter post from the Polish game studio. In the post, CEO Pawel Marchewka said, “We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfill 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 expectations of you, our fans.”

Dying Light 2 is the fourth title to receive last minute delay from its initial Spring 2020 release. Previously, Square Enix announced that they planned to delay the releases for Marvel’s The Avengers and Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
CD Projekt Red also joined the fray by announcing that Cyberpunk 2077 would be pushed back 5 months for the development team could continue playtesting, fixing, and polishing it. The only comfort those announcements had is that they provided fans with actual release dates, whereas this recent announcement didn’t specify when we could see Dying Light 2 release.
It was previously announced that Techland plans to release Dying Light 2 on the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. This has already caused speculation that Techland is planning to emphasize the game’s development for the next generation of consoles, instead of the current generation. Whether that is the case is unknown, but we are sure to find out in the coming months.
