Stay Human a little bit longer

This morning, developer Techland announced that open-world survivalist RPG Dying Light 2 Stay Human will no longer meet its previously stated release date of December 7, 2021, it will now launch on PC and consoles in February 2022.

Techland’s full statement on this, the latest in several delays for the sequel, reads as follows:

Today, we have important news to share with you about the development progress on Dying Light 2: Stay Human. It has always been our company’s goal to build transparent and honest communication with our community, fans, and gamers. Every day, we strive to grow in this element.

The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line. The game is complete and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it.

That is why we have decided to move the release date to February 4, 2022.

We are sorry to keep you all waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this. However, you won’t have to wait too long to get a deeper look at Dying Light 2: Stay Human. Next month, both press and content creators will get their hands on PC and console versions of the game during the upcoming series of preview events around the world. They’ll be able to share their experiences of The City with you.

In the meantime, we would like to thank all of our fans around the world—without your support and feedback, we would never have come so far on this journey. In addition to our regular updates, we’ll be gearing up to share some exciting news about the game later this month. Stay Safe and Stay Human.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human will now launch on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC February 4, 2022.
