Dying Light Release Date Pushed Back From Originally Planned

Dying Light Release Date Pushed Back From Originally Planned

Techland’s Dying Light has been delayed from the originally planned release for later this year to February of 2015.  In an announcement made available on the official Dying Light website, Techland comments:

When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation. We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open-world games. After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready.

We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing too early. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.

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.

Finally, we would like to thank our publishing partner, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, which fully supports our decision. It’s a real pleasure to work in an environment where quality is universally accepted as the top priority. We believe that this is the only way to make truly incredible games.

While any delay in the release of a game is usually met with a groan, one cannot get too upset for when a developer wants to spent some extra time making sure their title is as polished and finished as it can be. Granted, we will have to wait for when the game makes its way to our consoles before knowing if this extra time will do the game good.
