Dying Light 2 Is, You Guessed It, Delayed

Are there any games that actually want to come out this spring? Any others who want to sprint for the exits and show up in another season? Animal CrossingDoom Eternal? Bueller? Yet another delay has been added to the long list we've built in the past week or so. This time, it's Dying Light 2.


Developer Techland published the news on Twitter earlier this morning.

"We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfill our vision," the update read. "We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information."

It's safe to say we're definitely starting to notice a pattern with these blog posts and Twitter updates, by the way. If a studio has really good news to share, the headline usually makes that pretty clear. If you're about to get served a delay sandwich, the title usually looks something like, "Important [Insert Game Here] News."

It's the video game equivalent of having someone put a hand on your shoulder and say, "We need to talk." If that person was about to say something that would put a smile on your face, they'd just say it. "We need to talk" is not how an enjoyable conversation starts. Maybe these game companies need to try and make these delays sound like better news.


Sure, a delay is a bummer for those who've been patiently waiting to play. But "squashing bugs" or "adding more polish" or whatever is ultimately benefiting those who do end up buying the game. Sell that aspect of it harder! Don't act like you just backed over someone's pet dog with a car.

We'll have our ears to the ground for more news on Dying Light 2. If we hear anything about a replacement release date for the title, we'll fill you in.
