Developer Techland has announced that is delaying the launch of Dying Light 2: Stay Human once more to February of next year.
The news was announced to fans in a statement posted to the game’s official Twitter account. “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 realised for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it. That is why we have decided to move the release date to February 4th, 2022.”
The studio’s CEO Pawel Marchewka apologised to fans for the delay, but thanked fans for their patience. “We would like to thank of all our fans around the world – without your support and feedback, we would never have come so far on this journey.” To help ease the wait the team promise that it’ll hold a series of preview events next month. The team also tease they’ll share some “exciting news” on the game later this month.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human was originally set to launch in December. That date came after the studio admitted back in March that it had announced the game “too early” but refuted claims that the project was in any kind of “development hell”.
All being well then, Dying Light 2: Stay Human will now launch on February 4, 2022. It’ll land on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
