Publisher and developer Techland today announced that Dying Light 2 has gone gold. The status is given to games that are ready for manufacturing, but does not imply that work on the project will slow down or stop.
The developer has noted that it will spend the remaining two months leading up to Dying Light 2's release optimizing and polishing the open-world action-RPG. In addition, it will also work on implementing changes based on feedback received from both the community and the recent hands-on preview sessions.
"This is it. The final and crucial moment for us. The game is ready to be manufactured, but we will not slow down. The fact that the game is done and we hit the gold status two months before the release is a great sign but it doesn’t mean that our work ends here," said Lead Game Designer Tymon Smektała.
"There are still some upgrades and tweaks to add, and community feedback to implement, but the base is solid and ready to play. I’m extremely proud of the whole team!"
After delaying the game multiple times since it was first announced, developer Techland began delving deeper into its mechanics throughout 2021. News of it going gold further cements its February release date.
Although we won't get to play it over the holidays, Dying Light 2 will get a 15-minute gameplay video this Thursday, delving into the quests we'll have to complete and obstacles we'll end up facing. We should also get a good look at both its combat and traversing the open world.
Dying Light 2 is currently set to launch on February 4, 2022, arriving on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
