Techland has revealed that Dying Light 2 is at present deliberate for a launch sooner or later later this yr. Confirmed as a part of a really questionable video replace, the Polish developer spent practically half the time studying out imply tweets from “followers” earlier than sharing a number of seconds of gameplay. It is the first time we’ve seen the game in action since August 2019, when it was supposedly on observe to launch in Spring of the next yr. That fairly clearly never happened following an indefinite delay, and Techland recently admitted it announced Dying Light 2 far too early.
Again to the current day although and we now have some semblance of a launch window to stay up for in addition to the promise of extra information “very, very quickly”. The workforce wants its followers to stay by them for “only a bit longer”, so extra data and gameplay footage round E3 season sounds possible. “It is a big and sophisticated venture and we wanted time to verify it’s going to reside as much as our imaginative and prescient. All of us listed below are placing our hearts into delivering a sport you’ll hold taking part in for months.”
The studio additionally fully averted commenting on the recent workplace allegations from former employees. We’re nonetheless trying ahead to taking part in Dying Gentle 2 — hopefully later this yr — however this growth replace wasn’t it. Because the workforce spends time specializing in “followers” who would relatively hurl abuse than help on the developer in addition to dodging the query of what it is wish to work for Techland on the within, the few seconds of gameplay leaves a bitter style in our mouths. Possibly it ought to have simply waited till it had one thing of substance to really share with its fanbase as a substitute of placing abusive tweets on a pedestal. This actually wasn’t it.
