Dying Light 2 due out in spring 2020. But, in a recent tweet from @DyingLightGame, it was announced that the game had been delayed until further notice. The developer, Techland, has apologized for the delay, but wants to make sure he delivers what he promised.
Game delays are inevitable and should not be viewed as negative. Often players complain when the games are rushed to the market and are riddled with bugs and require a large patch download on the first day. For my part, I say: “Take your Techland time! And make sure that the delay in Dying Light 2 was for a good reason. “
Techland CEO Marchewka went further, explaining that they “will have more details to share in the coming months…” A copy of the CEO’s letter is below.
The delay of Dying Light 2 comes on the heels of other big game delays, like Cyberpunk 2077, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake and the Avengers. Will these delays pay off in the long term or will they ultimately lead to them? Sales can be affected if delays are long, causing fan disinterest and sometimes loss of trust between the player and the developer. Only time will tell how it will turn out for Dying Light 2 this year, once released.
