Starfield isn’t the only major video game delay happening today. Techland has announced that the first major story DLC for Dying Light 2, which was supposed to be released in June, will not be released until September.
“Over the past few months, we’ve focused on adding some of the most requested features like New Game+ mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements,” the studio said. “Also, in June, we will be introducing the first chapter of the game titled In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner, packed with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode.”
“That said, we need a little more time to develop the first DLC in the story, which is now planned for release in September.”
Techland has already released a few updates for Dying Light 2, including a Peacekeeper-themed weapons and armor set and a new plus game mode, and more are on the way. But this DLC will be the first major expansion in the story: the studio didn’t reveal details, but lead designer Tymon Smektała told WCCF Tech in April that it will be “centered in a specific place outside the city limits of Villedor” and “runs in parallel to the main story, so it can be started soon after Aiden arrives in town.”
“We apologize for the delay, but we firmly believe that our community, fans and players deserve to receive truly unforgettable experiences,” Techland said. “We want the first major story DLC to live up to your expectations, giving it the highest level of polish.”
And while I assume, a little more seriously, that the DLC throwback to Dying Light 2’s story isn’t a Starfield-level delay, it should still be a disappointment to fans. The updated Dying Light 2 development roadmap is below.
However, in June we will be introducing the first chapter of the game titled “In the Footsteps of a Night Runner”, packed with content and events, as well as the long-awaited photo mode, so stay tuned for more action in the City!May 12, 2022
