NOW WATCH BELOW: Dying Light 2’s gameplay trailer!
Despite originally being considered for a 2019 launch, the Dying Light 2 release date has been pushed back to a more elusive “Spring 2020” window.
This means that the sequel could drop at any point between March and June – but we are hoping that it will be sooner rather than later, as we don’t know how much longer we can wait!
The delayed-release date was announced with a gameplay teaser trailer, which gave us our first proper look at ‘The City’ and our infected protagonist, Aiden Caldwell.

Time and location
Techland describes the time period the game is set in as the “new dark ages”, where society has been dragged back into a Hobbesian state of nature by the zombie apocalypse.
The only difference is that 15 long years have passed, and now the humans pose as much of a threat to each other as the zombies do.
It is still unclear who you will be playing as, but the voice has changed noticeably from that of Kyle Crane in the prequel – we hope that the new protagonist Aiden Caldwell is slightly more charismatic and engaging.
Gameplay teaser trailer
In the absence of a release date, Techland were more than happy to release several minutes of direct gameplay footage at E3 2019, implying that the game is in the final stages of production.
Naturally, the updated visuals are gorgeous, and the demo also gives you a good idea of the game’s updated parkour and combat mechanics. The video shows off rich colours and exquisite skyline, so it’s worth the watch.
