Dying Light 2 Next-Gen: Is it coming to PS5 & Xbox Series X?

We've all been waiting for Techland's sequel to Dying Light for a long time and it looks like that day is finally upon us - almost. Dying Light 2 was announced at E3 2018 and has since been delayed several times - for a while, it didn't look like it was ever going to be released! Thankfully, we're nearing the final release date and it's time to gear up for a zombie-killing-free-running adventure like no other.

If you managed to get your hands on a next-gen console, you might be wondering if you can play Dying Light 2 on PS5 and Xbox Series X? Here's what we know ahead of when it comes out...

Is Dying Light 2 coming to next-gen consoles?

If you're looking forwards to the monumental jump into Dying Light 2's City with Aiden- in stunning 4K - you're in luck! It looks like Dying Light 2 is going to be available on all major platforms, next-gen consoles included! A while back, Techland also revealed that the next-gen upgrade would be free for players picking up Dying Light 2 on current-gen platforms when it launches.

As it stands, the download size for Dying Light 2 isn't actually as big as you'd think it would be. PlayStation Game Size has reported that it's due to be around 21GB in size - without any Day One Patch updates.

This is far from the final file size we expected given the fact that the map is expected to be at least four times bigger than the map in Dying Light - however, we'll just have to wait and see what this ends up being after any updates and patches.

Dying Light 2 is due to release February 4th, 2022, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Nintendo Switch via the Cloud.

" The virus won and civilization has fallen back to the Dark Ages. The City, the last human settlement, is trying to rebuild a semblance of routine. You are a wanderer with great power and abilities, haunted by memories you cannot decipher, you set out to learn the truth. What influence will you have on the people of The City? Choose sides and decide your destiny. But wherever your actions take you, there's one thing you can never forget: stay human."
