Following in the footsteps of Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake, Dying Light 2 has become the latest casualty to 2020 game delays.
In a statement from Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka, it states: “It was a busy year for us as we continued working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what we promised.
“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 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.
“Please stay tuned, and thank you to our fans around the world for your continued support, patience, and understanding.”
The fact the developer hasn't given an exact release window could be a cause for concern, or as is most likely the case, they could be waiting until they know for certain to prevent any further disappointment with fans.
Dying Light 2 is the sequel to Techland's 2015 original Dying Light, which blends open-world survival horror experience with parkour mechanics.
Along with Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake, Marvel’s Avengers and Iron Man VR have also been delayed to later in the year.
Dying Light 2 is set to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
