Dying Light, the Mirror’s Edge meets Left for Dead game, has been delayed until early next year. This might come as a shock to most gamers, after rumors of a delay were denied back in March. Techland, the developer, released the following statement noting that February 2015 would be the more likely date for a Dying Light release.
“The new date ensures that we can fully realize our vision of an innovative open world game. We won’t need to make compromises or trade-offs on any of the five platforms we’re working on. For you, it means an outstanding, original game that makes the wait more than worthwhile.” Those five platforms being Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PC.
Techland really shows their integrity in that statement. Techland isn’t taking the route of most developers and just releasing a game as is, then charge more for downloadable content that should be in the initial release. Then hit us with a ton of fixes. They want to give us a perfect game, and they won’t release Dying Light until they think that it is.
Many of the gameplay elements shown in the trailers and previews that have been released are impressive. We can only expect more of that to come, so waiting for Techland to give us their best shouldn’t be that hard to do. Check out the trailer below.
