Developer Techland has delayed open world zombie title Dying Light 2 indefinitely. The ambitious sequel was previously meant to release in Spring 2020.
The reasons given for Dying Light 2's unexpected delay have to do with the developer needing more time to make sure that the game lives up to its standards.
Dying Light 2 Delayed
"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., Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka said.
"We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans."
Dying Light 2 is the latest in a string of delayed high-profile releases. Cyberpunk 2077, Marvel's Avengers and Final Fantasy VII Remake were also recently delayed.
Back in August, Dying Light 2 was given a gruesome gameplay demo that gave us a better look at its parkour system and how player choice will shape its world.
Techland also promised "huge expansions" as part of the title's post-launch DLC plan. Whether or not Dying Light 2's delay changes those plans remains to be seen.
