Another Big Game, Dying Light 2, Has Been Delayed

Another Big Game, Dying Light 2, Has Been Delayed

Dying Light 2 has been delayed until…sometime in the future. Originally planned for a Spring 2020 release the game now has no release date. It is yet another big game that has been delayed in recent weeks.

In a letter announcing the delay, Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka explained the game needed more development time and that they would have more info in the coming months.

Dying Light 2 joins a growing list of games that have been delayed recently which includes the Final Fantasy 7 remake, The Avengers and Cyberpunk 2077. Odds are high that this isn’t the last big game to see a delay.

While delays can sometimes help developers improve games, they can also lead to more crunch time.


    • I think Dying Light is a lot more important to Techland than Dead Island is to THQ Nordic. They probably can’t afford to scrap the project at this point.

      • Indeed, it’ll come out, I’m just disappointed. But I’d rather, as the saying goes, have them take the time to get it right, rather than rush to release it ala Bethesda…

    • eh dead island 2 was only announced because deep silver was shitty that techland left them. it was basically a repeat of of Codemasters getting pissy about Bohemia Interactive leaving them.

  • At least now I can complete the first Dying Light that’s been sitting untouched in my steam library.

    Small victories 🙂

  • seems like 2020 might be remembered as the year of delays if this keeps up. well whether this is ultimately a good or bad this is yet to be determined.
