Dying Light dev cancels dark fantasy tale Hellraid

To make more Dying Light content

Hellraid was announced as a Dead Island follow up in 2013. We finally got a good look at it late last year following a delay for current gen and PC exclusivity. It was meant to come out this year, but that’s not happening, Hellraid‘s Facebook page announced. Sounds like it might not come out at all.

“We would like to officially announce that our dark fantasy FPP game Hellraid will not be released this year as previously planned, and the development of the game has been put on hold.

“In the recent months we conducted an internal analysis and came to the conclusion that Hellraid, in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project. Therefore, we decided the best course of action would be to send it back to the drawing board and invent our dark fantasy title anew.”

Instead, Techland will, “will consolidate our development resources and focus on further expansion of our Dying Light franchise.” Sounds like a case of, “Zombies did well? More zombies!” Old habits die hard.
