After being MIA since it was delayed in January, Dying Light 2’s developer Techland assures that new info will be shared in the new year.

Dying Light 2, the sequel to the original 2015 survival horror game, initially had a vague spring release date but ended up being delayed back in January.

Techland didn’t provide a specific reason for the delay and, since then, has been completely silent, but it aims to break that silence sometime in 2021.

A message from Techland on the game’s official Discord server (which has been shared via Reddit) reads: ‘Happy Holidays from the Dying Light team! We’ve been, er, dying to update you all on how development has been going.

‘We’ll have fresh updates about Dying Light 2 coming in the new year!’

Whether this means new info is planned for early in the year or later on isn’t clear, but hopefully the wait won’t be too much longer for excited fans.

Perhaps Techland will be able to offer a new release window or, at the very least, new gameplay footage.

The original Dying Light was rough around the edges, but the sequel looks to be a marked improvement if the E3 2019 demo was anything to go by.

Dying Light 2 is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
