Dying Light 2 is the latest high-profile title to be removed from the Spring release season at the last minute.
Dying Light 2 was originally scheduled to release sometime in Spring 2020. But those plans have now changed according to a recent Twitter post from the Polish game studio. In the post, CEO Pawel Marchewka said, “We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2. But unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfil 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.”
“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 an open-world first-person zombie apocalyptic-themed action role-playing game. The game begins 15 years after Dying Light, starring a new protagonist named Aiden Caldwell. He is equipped with various parkour skills. Players can perform actions such as climbing ledges, sliding, leaping off from edges, and wall running to quickly navigate the city. The game is mostly melee-based with the majority of fighting using melee weapons. The Game is set in The City, a massive urban open world that players can explore freely. The map, which is four times bigger than the original game. Making certain decisions will open up or seal-off areas in the city, encouraging players to complete multiple playthroughs. Like its predecessor, the game features four-player cooperative multiplayer.
Where is Aiden Caldwell?
You are the new protagonist. Your name is Aiden Cadwell and you, are an infected survivor. Dying Light two has been set 15 years after the events of the first. The last human settlement lives between the undead world, in a semblance of the dark ages. A modern Dark era, if you will. Firstly, in the day, the humans, factions and starving survivors scrounge for scraps across the city. Further, in the night, the undead comes out and roam free, eager to find and taste the living.
You are an infected survivor, and you have incredible agility and fighting skills. Your combat ability is unmatched, and you are an asset to the world of the living. It is now your job, to reach places no can reach and kill the undead, and hopefully, not lose your life in the process.
