The next installment in the Dying Light series is set to launch next year, with Techland returning to the open-world zombie game once again. While the game is set to launch at some point in 2020, a release date hasn’t currently been announced. However, we can speculate on when the game is likely to launch on all supported platforms.
Techland has gone on record saying that the next game in the series is set to launch within the first half of 2020, with a Q1/Q2 release being listed. Considering that both quarters are listed, it’s unlikely to launch at the very beginning of 2020. This would make it different when compared to the release of the original Dying Light, which launched at the end of January back in 2015.
With the information that we have right now, it’s looking more likely that the game is going to launch at some point in April or May of 2020. Of course, that’s with the development process staying on track and avoiding any big delays. Of course, this is all speculation on our part, and we’ll bring you official information as soon as it becomes available.
The following is an overview from the official Steam page:
“It’s been 15 years since humanity lost to the virus.
The last great human settlement exists within an unforgiving, infected world, plunged into a modern dark age. During the day, bandits, factions and starving survivors roam the streets scavenging for scraps – or someone to take them from, by violence if necessary. At night the infected roam free, evacuating their dark hideouts to prey on the living.
You are Aiden Caldwell, an infected survivor. Your exceptional agility and brutal combat skills make you a powerful ally and a valuable commodity in this dangerous world. You can achieve things no one else can. Enter places no one else dares. With your unique abilities you have the power to be an agent of change within this decaying metropolis.
The fate of the city is in your hands.”
Dying Light 2 is in development for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
