A recent expose about the development of Dying Light 2 raised the possibility of Microsoft buying Techland, but apparently that's not happening.
That's a relief that the game is coming to all of the major platforms. I'm purchasing a PS5 and would be devastated if this game didn't come to that console. The original dying light was one of my favorite games of this generation.
Microsoft usually honors the commitments that their studios made before acquisition. For example Psychonauts 2 and Wastelands 3 will both be published on the PS4 despite the studios now being owned by Microsoft. So if this had been true, Dying Light would have still released on PS4. Although the way it sounds they may have been better off being acquired by Microsoft. It's not sounding too great for the studio or the game right now.
For the first time ever i will be buying both nextgen consoles, life is to short to miss out on some gems
Someone who gets it! Enjoy the games no matter what console they are on.
I been doing that since the 2nd console gen. There is always a reason to buy both (or more) and that reason is the games that you just cant play any other way.
Finally someone with maturity on N4G, its a rare thing nowadays
I might get both consoles as well. I think the new Xbox is going to be good. I like every platform. It's always been a matter of not having enough time for me.
Isn't nice to just be a gamer? Not a fanboy?
Get a pc u wont regret it
Microsoft should get a hold of Bloober team, they seem to have a good partnership.
I wouldn't mind that acquisition either. I think it's only a matter of time before Layers of Fear 2 hits Game Pass. I've enjoyed all their games, even the scorned Blair Witch. I would kill for a sequel to Observer.
there have been rumors that they were wanting a Polish studio. This studio would fit that...I wouldn't mind a Polish one and a Japanese one.
any word on the dying light 1 dev?
Techland is the developer of Dying Light.
if Microsoft acquires anybody else, it should be saber interactive. ☝️
With a big seller like dying light 2 is gonna be it would be a very stupid move to miss out on all the ps4 and ps5 money. Never gonna happen
If MS acquires any more studios, my hopes are: Bloober Team(Blair Witch, Medium) and Asobo Studios(A Plagues Tales, Flight Sim). I feel like they fit well with the culture and size MS is looking for and both already have a good relationship with MS.
All signs point to them getting a Japanese studio next. Really hoping its Mistwalker
It would be neat but I'm not going to hold my breath. I feel like MS would be better suited to focus more on European developers and gain more momentum in that market because I don't see Xbox becoming a big player in Japan unless they acquire some big publisher like Sega. They should try getting 3rd party Japanese exclusives instead if they can.
oh please no... stay solo you guys make good games, be free to do what you want
I’m more interested to know about the status of Dying Light 2.
People need to stop throwing out the rumor that MS is buying this studio or that. These kinds of articles are getting annoying.
Hope they go with, "Avellone's "complicated, layered RPG-style story" take.
