'Dying Light 2' Was Announced Too Early, Developer Admits

Three years. That's how long it's been since Techland first announced Dying Light 2 to the world during Microsoft's E3 2018 conference. In that time, we've heard reports of a massive open-world game filled with choices and consequence, but have only seen an incredibly small slice of gameplay.

We've also heard of delays, developers leaving the project, and a troubled development with allegations of poor management and toxic workplace conditions.

After all of that, Techland is finally gearing up for some kind of announcement. We have no idea exactly what this entail or how much will be shown off. All we know is that the studio has said it has a "few words" to share about the zombie parkour game's "development process" this Wednesday.

While we wait for this big announcement, one thing is clear: Techland showed off Dying Light 2 way too early. It certainly sounds like an ambitious project, one that might not even have known how ambitious it wanted to be back when it was first shown off. Having only seen the briefest gameplay segments, some fans are clearly starting to look at Dying Light 2 and see another Cyberpunk 2077 waiting to happen.

We can only hope that won't be the case. Not only did Techland make it very clear earlier this year that Dying Light 2 will release only when it's ready, it recently made an open admission that it messed up by announcing the game too early.

Responding to a fan who accused the game of being in "development hell" on Twitter, Techland insisted that Dying Light 2 is making progress every day. "We announced the game too early but it's far from being in a dev hell," they wrote.

Dying Light 2 was originally set to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2020. It's currently unclear when or what platforms the game will come to, but hopefully we'll find out this week.
