Dying Light 2: Stay Human has been delayed once again. This time the post-apocalyptic zombie game has been pushed back to February 4th, 2022.
A statement announcing the delay was published on social media by Techland CEO, Pawel Marchewka. The detailed statement explained why Dying Light 2 must be delayed further.
“It has always been our company’s goal to build transparent and honest communication with our community, fans, and gamers,” says Marchewka.
Extra polish and optimisation is needed
The CEO continues: “The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line. The game is complete, and we are currently playtesting it.
“It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it.”
It’s not the first time that Dying Light 2 has been delayed since it was revealed at E3 2019. In fact, news of the game’s development was fairly silent up until recently. However, this year, Techland has been generous with news and updates on its development.
The previous release date prior to this recent delay was December 7th, 2021. So, at least we’ll only have to wait a couple of more months. That’s assuming of course, that Dying Light 2 doesn’t get delayed again.
Patience is a virtue
That all being said, I am a big fan of the original Dying Light which was initially released in 2015. So, as with any video game, I always want it to release in the best state possible with the least amount of pressure piled on the developers.
