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.
In case you guys wondered, Techland was not acquired by another publisher. We're still an independent studio, and will deliver Dying Light 2 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.— Ola Sondej (@olasondej) May 6, 2020
According to Sondej, the English translation of the Polish article is inaccurate, leading to the misinformation and false news of the company’s status.
While I have your attention, development of Dying Light 2 is moving forward, the game's in good shape (and in good hands), so worry not. It IS coming.— Ola Sondej (@olasondej) May 6, 2020
Thankfully, it seems that Techland is still going strong and pushing ahead with Dying Light 2. While the game was delayed back in January indefinitely, this tweet seems to indicate that development on the title has been going ahead despite the current pandemic.
There is no current release date for Dying Light 2, but you can pre-order the sequel on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
