Techland Says Dying Light 2 Is Still Coming Despite Rumors

The rumors about Techland being acquired by Microsoft overnight aren't true.


Despite reports that Techland, the developers of Dying Light, was secretly bought out by Microsoft from Polshi Gamedev, it seems that Techland is still going strong. Taking to Twitter, Ola Sondej, the senior PR manager at Techland, has confirmed that the company was not acquired by another publisher like the Polish report stated.

According to Sondej, the English translation of the Polish article is inaccurate, leading to the misinformation and false news of the company’s status.
