Dying Light 2 is the fifth major title within a week that has been delayed, joining Final Fantasy VII Remake, Marvel’s Avengers, Iron Man VR, and Cyberpunk 2077. This isn’t the first time Dying Light 2 has been delayed with the game originally set for a 2019 release. It was then pushed back to a generic Spring 2020 release. Today, Techland released a statement saying more development time is required to meet the studio’s vision for Dying Light 2. This time the company declined to give a release window meaning this will be a long term delay.

Last year, it was confirmed that Dying Light 2 would be a cross-generational title with Techland aiming to release the game on PS5 and Xbox Series X alongside current-gen machines. Without having any inkling of how long this delay could be we may not see Dying Light 2 until the next consoles are settled as products. Techland may decide to shift more resources to those versions of the game over the current gen.
Dying Light 2 is set 15 years after the first Dying Light and if you want to have a look at the game you can check out 26 minutes of gameplay here.
