It seems all of the most anticipated games of this year are getting delayed, and Dying Light 2 is the latest, with Techland scrapping its Spring release date.
The announcement came from the official Dying Light twitter page, with developer/publisher Techland stating: “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 statement doesn’t include a revised launch date, so we don’t know when we can now expect to get our hands on Dying Light 2, but according to the company: “We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information”.
Dying Light 2 isn’t the only big-name title to push back its release recently. Cyberpunk 2077, the Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers have all announced delays in the past few weeks as well.
Let’s hope this trend doesn’t continue and we’re not still waiting for Half Life: Alyx come 2025.
