Techland has announced that Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been delayed and will now launch for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S with a new release date of February 4, 2022. The studio explained the reasoning for the delay in a statement on Twitter. Long story short, Techland says that Dying Light 2 Stay Human is “nearing the finish line” but will need more time in the oven so the team can provide a more polished and optimized experience. The open-world choice-based parkour zombie sequel was previously set to launch December 7.

“We are sorry to keep you all waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this,” Techland said.

The studio added that press and content creators will get a hands-on look at Dying Light 2 Stay Human next month. Techland will have more news to share later this month as well.

Though most fans will likely understand the reasoning for the release date delay, the news is surely disappointing, especially considering the two-year wait many have endured since Dying Light 2 Stay Human was first revealed to the public. Techland acknowledged the long development in a follow-up tweet, thanking those who have been patient since its initial announcement.
