The past week has been dominated by high-profile game delays, with Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII Remake and Marvel’s Avengers all being pushed from their initial release dates to dates later in the year. Today we get to add another heavy hitter to the delay pile with Techland announcing that Dying Light 2 has been delayed from its Spring 2020 window (Autumn in Australia) with no new date given.
Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka announced the delay via social media, saying that the Polish-based studio needs more time to fulfil its vision for Dying Light 2 and will have more details to share regarding the game’s release in the coming months. You can read the statement in full below:

Both Cyberpunk 2077 and Marvel’s Avengers received lengthy delays, so it’s somewhat odd Techland didn’t offer a new release date given how close it is to its original release window. Perhaps the delay stems from the studio’s plans for the game to bring the game to both current-gen and next-gen consoles? Either way, a delay is no doubt good for the final product but frustrating for fans who can’t wait to go hands-on with the game.
