Unveiled at E3 2018 and originally scheduled for spring 2020 release. Dying light 2 had given no news since the announcement of his postponement. Two days ago, we heard from Paweł Sellinger’s LinkedIn profile that he was leaving Techland. There had been confusion with his previous duties as artistic director. This announcement had sparked rumors of disorganization in the studio, which led to fears that the position was vacant and that this would hinder development. However, he was the game’s last screenwriter since November 2019. His previous role as artistic director has since been filled by Eric Cochonneau and is therefore provided without interruption while maintaining the continuity of production.
Paweł Selinger, who has been with Techland for 22 years, had already signaled his intention to leave the studio at the end of 2020 in order to pursue his career towards other horizons. This departure had also been expected since Piotr Szymanek took over the narrative pole in October 2020. In response to Paweł Selinger’s departure, Techland thanked him for his many years of work and wished him all the best. in his future projects. So it is on good terms that this separation was made. To confirm that this move will not delay development of the game and that it is well advanced, the studio should announce “exciting news” soon.
As a reminder, the title is a first-person action survival horror set in a universe where zombies invade. The basis of the gameplay is to encourage escape via a parkour system so as not to be overwhelmed by enemies. The game offers the opportunity to make decisions that have an impact on the world. We can also expect the publisher to provide content after it is published, as it did with the first installment.
To immerse yourself in the apocalyptic atmosphere of Dying light 2 We can see the announcement teaser again.
