December launch dates are at all times a bit dodgy; the video games at all times really feel like they’re both going to make it or be delayed to March the next yr with none in-between. Dying Light 2, initially scheduled for seventh December 2021, falls into the latter class. Techland delayed the open world zombie title to 4th February 2022 as of this morning, citing the necessity for extra time to optimise and polish the sport.
The meat of the statement issued on Twitter reads: “The workforce is steadily progressing with the manufacturing and the sport is nearing the end line. The sport is full and we’re at present playtesting it. It’s by far the largest and most formidable undertaking we have ever accomplished. Sadly, we have realized for us to carry the sport as much as the extent we envision, we’d like extra time to shine and optimize it.”
It is the second official delay for Dying Mild 2 after the game was pushed back indefinitely in January 2020, which was then reintroduced earlier this yr. However so as to get the title as much as par, Techland wants just a few extra months. This implies the sport will now launch in shut proximity to Elden Ring, Sifu, Saints Row, and Horizon Forbidden West.
“We’re sorry to maintain you all ready a little bit longer, however we wish the sport to satisfy your highest expectations on launch and we do not need to compromise on this.” Press and content material creators will apparently have the ability to play the sport subsequent month in a collection of preview occasions.
