Dying Light 2 Release Date delayed

Dying Light 2 is the follow-up to the enormously well-liked zombie game Dying Light.

Although it was originally played to release in 2020, the game was delayed.

Dying Light 2 hasn't been without controversy and the games development and team seem to have suffered in kind. TechLand dropped its lead writer, Chris Avellone, after allegations of sexual assault (as reported by Gamasutra).

This has shaped the release somewhat. Here's what we know so far.

Latest - Dying Light 2 Delayed to 2022

In some unfortunate but not entirely unsurprising news, Dying Light 2 has been delayed to February 4th, 2022. Having a handful of delays already plus over a year of at-home development work, it can be hard to estimate how far along the game really is.

When Is Dying Light 2's Release Date?

Techland has announced that Dying Light 2 will launch on February 4th, 2022

Judging by the footage shown during the live stream, this looks like an achievable release date, and while a further delay is still possible, it seems reasonably safe to say that we can begin to get hyped!

Preorders are now live, which is another positive sign for the game hitting its release date.
