In a statement, CEO Pawet Marchewka informed fans that, “It was a busy year for us as we continue working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what we promised.” Marchewka continues, “We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information.”
The delay is just one of a few high budget games releasing in 2020 that have received the delayed treatment, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Cyberpunk 2077, being the others. However, it seems the development team is set on taking the time they need to deliver a better product overall.
In Dying Light 2, players assume the role of Aiden Caldwell, who has found his way to The City, the last bastion of humanity where factions fight for power and regular citizens fight to stay alive. It’s going to be up to the player to choose Aiden’s fate through missions and decisions. This story is in the player’s hands.
