Dying Light 2 is shaping up to be a very ambitious game, with a world that changes based on your choices as well as competing factions. It still features the original game’s cooperative play and emphasis on parkour for daring escapes, but it should also be more engaging and have a better-realized setting.
With the original game releasing more than six years ago, the wait certainly hasn’t been easy, but the canceled game Hellraid was used as DLC for the original game to make it a little bit more bearable last summer.
Dying Light 2, as with the original game, is developed by Techland. The process has reportedly been tumultuous, with complaints regarding the company’s use of other games as creative starting points for its own projects as well as a toxic work culture. Chris Avellone previously served as narrative director on the project, but the developer cut ties with him in the wake of several sexual assault and harassment allegations.
