Physical copies of Dying Light have been delayed in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia, developer Techland has announced in an official statement to the game's Facebook page.

"As physical production has a longer lead time than digital there is some delay in the aforementioned territories," Techland said. "We will share information on the availability of physical copies as soon as it is confirmed." Techland also said it will be a "short delay."

To be clear, you'll still be able to get the game digitally in those territories on its January 27 release date, just not in stores.

The upcoming parkour-inspired zombie game Dying Light is due to release on January 27, 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game was originally expected to also come to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but those versions were recently canceled.

We've reached out to Techland to find out more about the delay and will update this post with anything we hear back.
