Dying Light 2 is shaping up to be one of 2022's biggest games, expanding upon the original's foundation both in terms of gameplay and worldbuilding.
As is often the case with titles that have an online component, questions regarding crossplay and just how far cross-platform support extends at launch often pop up.
Dying Light 2 crossplay would be a welcome addition to the open-world title, allowing players to help each other regardless of the platform they're playing on. More and more games include the feature and we now know how Techland will approach implementing it.
Dying Light 2 Crossplay
Although it's one of the features that is requested most often in online discussions, Dying Light 2 cross-platform support will not be available when the game launches on the 4th February, 2022.
Lead Game Designer Tymon Smektala confirmed that this would be the case in an interview with Wccftech.
"So, no, this will not be implemented at the start but we are looking very closely at it and we hopefully will be able to activate/introduce it later during the life of the game," Smektala said.
The lack of Dying Light 2 crossplay at launch means that you'll only be able to play alongside players who use the same platform.
Nonetheless, it's good to hear that the developer is at least considering adding Dying Light 2 cross-platform support after the game launches.
We're hoping it won't be too long before crossplay makes its way in and will keep you posted on if or when that finally happens.
Dying Light 2 is slated to launch on February 4, 2022 and headed to PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
