It's been well over a year since we last received a substantial update from Techland on Dying Light 2. It looks like that's finally about the change.
Late last year Techland promised that 2021 would be the year we finally get an update on the long-gestating open-world zombie game. A brief message on the game's official Discord server read: "Happy Holidays from the Dying Light team! We've been, er, dying to update you all on how development has been going. We'll have fresh updates about Dying Light 2 in the new year."
Now, the studio has confirmed a development update for Wednesday, March 17. "We've got a few words to share with you about the Dying Light 2 development process," the tweet reads. "Be sure to be with us next Wednesday." The studio then asked fans to get acquainted with the Dying Light Discord server, where they'll be the first to hear the news.
The ambitious sequel was supposed to arrive in spring 2020, but was indefinitely delayed in January 2020. This led to repeated speculation that there were - or rather are - serious issues with the game's development.
Polish games site Polski Gamedev was first to publish an investigation into Techland that turned up some serious issues and accusations of a toxic work environment. Many of these claims were corroborated just a few weeks in a wide-ranging report from The Gamer, which details how 20 employees have left the studio in just two months as a result of poor management.
It's unclear what Techland will share with us as part of this upcoming update. A release date would be fantastic, obviously, but we'll have to wait and see. We'll be sure to keep an eye on the Dying Light Discord server and update you with the news as we get it.
