Dying Light 2’s lead game designer, Tymon Smektala, has revealed that the game is in its final stretch of development. Moreover, Smektala hinted at an incoming announcement regarding the game’s new release date.
While Smektala did not go into more details, he did say that a whole team at Techland works on the announcement of the release date. According to Smektala, Techland wants to surprise players, so we can expect an announcement soon.
As Smektala told TheEscapist:
“There’s a whole team at Techland that works on the announcement of the release date for the game and every piece of info that accompanies it, and I know they want to surprise players, so I don’t want to spoil it for them or our community. The only thing I can say is please trust us; it’s the last stretch for this project, and we need your support.”
In that interview, senior PR manager Ola Sondej also addressed the controversy surrounding Dying Light 2. Sondej claimed that the article from PolskiGamedev.pl had numerous inaccuracies. Sondej stated that the development of Dying Light 2 is moving forward according to Techland’s internal schedule.
Since there will be numerous game announcements in both June and July, we may also hear more about Dying Light 2. And, since the game is in its final stretch, we might get the game in our hands later this year. Hopefully.
Stay tuned for more!
