Dying Light was lauded for its post-launch support—receiving new, free content more than three years after release—and Techland is determined to repeat that model for Dying Light 2.
Speaking to Prankster 101 recently, the sequel’s lead game designer Tymon Smektała mentioned the team’s dedication to updating the game after launch:
“Dying Light 1 was supported for 4 years after its release, and the plan for Dying Light 2 is exactly the same. […] We know that a lot of fans will be waiting for DLCs, updates, extra stuff they can get their hands on. And we promise to deliver them just that.”
Smektała also spoke about the team’s ambitions for the upcoming sequel, saying that it will be the “benchmark by which all of our subsequent Techland games will be judged.”
Dying Light 2 will expand on the systems of its predecessor, most notably through the addition of a branching story that challenges players by using an autosave feature to lock in the tough moral decisions the game demands.
Dying Light 2 is currently targeting an early 2020 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
