Techland has decided to address the issues brought up yesterday saying that Dying Light 2's development is currently a total mess. In case you're not caught up, yesterday we covered a report from a Polish website that talked with staffers and other sources saying that the game's development was basically in chaos. In response, the company issued a brief statement to the media about the things mentioned in the article this morning. Here's what we received.
At Techland we work as a team and we grow as a team. We are proud that many of our employees have chosen to be with us for years. The mentioned article contains various opinions – from both our employees, and anonymous sources. Each opinion matters to us, so we are now carefully analyzing all the topics raised. When it comes to Dying Light 2 – development is moving forward according to our internal schedule we revised at the beginning of the year.
The company also took the time on Twitter to briefly address a rumor most of us dismissed, in which they denied the company had been purchased by another bigger company like Microsoft. The rumors of what's going on at Techland have been going on for a few months now, and really picked up steam after they delayed Dying Light 2 from being released this Spring until what could probably end up being next year after the COVID-19 issues came up. The article above didn't do them any favors as it sounded like the game had little to no direction and sounds like it's on the verge of being in what the industry affectionately calls Development Hell. We'll keep an eye on things and see how it all progresses from here, but the reality is without someone going on the record beyond being an anonymous source to give the information more credibility, we won't know which side is correct about it for months.
