Techland has announced a Dying Light 2 delay. The game, which was originally scheduled to launch later this year, has been pushed back to early 2022.
😄 Knew it!
Dying Light 2 is still being delayed and Cyberpunk is still being patched. Both were/are 2020 games.
And both are developed in Poland
I know this isn't your argue, but I would wait for a well pollished game over a disaster like CP77 that been praised (claiming it runs good) by fanboys. Delays to get a full game > Pathetic amount of patches.
You're waiting for a well "polished" game? Nice one lol On the real, have they done anything since Dying Light? Seem kind of crazy they can survive this long without putting out anything.
Understandable, it looks like 2021 is ending with an extremely lackluster lineup for games for the holidays. It’s going to come down to Halo and COD.
Halo and COD? That's sad
Battlefield 2042 will own those game!
I'm personally going for "Hell let loose" over cod, bf2042 and halo. Infact "enlisted" is fun too for a f2p game
Numerous rumors floating around that BF2042 is getting delayed.
The only thing lackluster is your taste in games.
I should’ve been more clearer with my statement. I am not a fan of any of those franchises and that’s why I said that this is going to be a lackluster holiday. COD has been a rinse and repeat for the past decade and Halo is a dying franchise.
Some people are just bored with the same franchises and would like to see something fresh. Halo and Call of Duty were the hit holiday releases when I graduated high school. Let's get some knew IP to get excited about.
I'm not a sheep bah bah 🐑
There is still Diablo II Resurrected, Forza Horizon 5, Lost Judgement, Kena, Riders Republic, Back 4 Blood, and Halo Infinite. We already have Pyschonauts 2, Deathloop (Today), Hades, Tales of Arise. Then continuous franchises such as Battlefield, CoD, Far Cry, Maybe not super strong, but still lots to game with through this holiday. I also expect a bunch of games that are currently announced for February-May to be delayed. Either to give them a better launch timing around games like Horizon and GT or to get them more polish.
Honestly, all those games you listed seem fine, but given my tastes Kena is the only one I may end up playing, and given its silence at the recent event I'm getting more weary about it.
Blizzard deserves zero money
@arkard Every publisher has gone through at least one dark period where they didn't serve gamers well. I judge every game as they release, I don't white list because they had other great games and black list because of a bad game or monetization policy. From what I can see of Diablo II it is worth a purchase. Full regular price? Probably not.
My next games are oxenfree, Greek, golf club wastelands followed by Kena, lost in random, hell let loose and rider rebublic (great beta) Might pick up bf2042 depends on how hell let loose goes.
I'm with you and honestly, how many of those games do you have the time to play? People today have so many games to play. Back in the 80S, 90S and early 2000s you were lucky to have 1 to 5 games a year that were worth playing. Some incredible titles still coming out this year. I have a back log of games I haven't even touched yet. Gamers have never had it so good.
Halo is a dying franchise? It's not my all time favorite game either but I wouldn't say it's dying because you don't like it.
Agree Halo and gears were flagship titles during the original xbox and 360 era. Those gamers have since moved on and I can't see halo or gears being thta popular again? Maybe maybe not but going off recent sales of the last few games they've dropped off significantly compared to 10million plus on 360. PlayStation generally does it right 3 or 4 games per franchise them move on even UC4 was almost too many imo but obviously had to be concluded.
It's not dying. It's just that it isn't a titanic anymore because game sales have become more concentrated in a smaller number of franchises. In the PS2 gen, a game was a hit if it sold 1-2 million. So games like GTA and Gran Turismo that sold over ten million were crazy standouts. The same is true with Halo. It would sell over 10 million when other games were major hits if they sold 3-4 million. But now there are far more games that sell over 10 million, and then there are free to play titles with much larger audiences, so Halo doesn't feel like as dominant of a force because it isn't as big relative to other games, even if its absolute numbers are similar to its heyday.

2022 is going to be a busy year.. start saving those pennies.
That's what people said last year... trust me there will be more delays and some games will be pushed back to 2023. These couple of years have been dry for bigger games, this has to be one of the slowest times for big games in recent history that i remember. Games taking more time to make and the current state in the world is really affecting the window in which we are getting new big games. And with companies being scared to take risks, we end up with bunch of games that "feel" the same. I've been playing older games recently and honestly it's been refreshing, but i still yearn for something big that ISN'T a remake, maybe Elden Ring will satiate me.
We didn't get anything about next Nier, Final Fantasy XVI, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy Collection for consosles, Final Fantasy XIII trilogy PS5 remastered, not even an update on Final Fantasy "Kill Chaos". 2022 will be packed with shallow experiences aside from Horizon, Mario/Zelda game, ForzaH. Just a lilttle bit better than current year. Still no real exclusives that shows the graphical leap, almost no console is offered by the tag price. Hope at mid of 2022 this won't be the case.
The pandemic pushed everything back 6/12months at the end of the day. Imagine the booking slots at motion capture studios now? They'll be a traffic jam if the studios don't have there own mocap studio.
Hell yes, Elden Ring is on my mind frequently! I want dying light 2, but it's seeming like there's been development problems above the ones everyone is facing right now. I'll be happy if it actually comes out next year in a finished state, and is fun. I'm guessing they got feature creep, and bit off too much.
I'm skint now fifa pre order, Greek, oxenfree, golf wastelands just bought then I'll have my Kena and deathloop. Still playing hades and returnal ffs
Damn, was looking forward to paying this. It's all good though. Smart move as it was to close to Halo: Infinite launch anyway. We got plenty games out now and coming before years end.
You can still pay it. Just pre-order. :P
hahaha! Typo, that did make me laugh for real though. I was sitting here like, wtf he talkin bout?
Or buy something else and play it now lost in random, Kena, deathloop, Greek, golf wastelands,, oxenfree, hades, returnal, ratchet etc etc? Loads of great games about why wait till nxt year I'm sure they'll have another £70 by then?
Last three months of this year and first three months of next year are f***** mental with amount of games and movies I'm interested in so it's fine by me. I'll go broke for sure either way.
So basically the last gen versions are averaging 23 fps on the base consoles and Techland doesn't want Dying Light 2 to be called "this year's Cyberpunk." Who wants to bet that when press plays it next month, they won't be playing it on base PS4 or Xbox One?
Totally agree this game won't run for shite on last gen another studio who made the wrong mistake. Its OK for cod, fifa, madden, indie titles to have cross over games but why cd project red and techland thought this would be a good move on old consoles is beyond me. Those 2 games mentioned were clearly super ambitious from the get go so who made the calls?
I'm getting Dying Light: Platinum Edition for Switch. You think this will ever get a port for Switch?
It's especially disappointing because Techland made the smart move by canceling the last gen versions (PS3 and 360 at that time) of the first Dying Light, so we didn't end up with a gimped game. You'd think that with how that game became a massive success (instead of being forgotten in 3 months as it likely would have been if they would have gimped it for the older consoles), they would have realized that focusing on the current gen at the time is the right move.
Release date is two weeks before Horizon forbidden west. February is going to be loaded with games
I’ll wait even longer to get Dying Light 2 now , too many games at once . I’ll be playing Elden Ring until Forbidden West comes out after Forbidden West I’ll take a loot at Dting Light 2
early 2022? another one?? do these people not know that early 2022 is already packed with huge releases??
dang will this game ever release? how made delays now?
This delay better mean its for a ps5 and XsX version and not last gen
this game will not be out for a long long time they are full of BS
2021 was a really bad year for gaming, no doubt. gave me a chance to clear up a bit of my backlog tho
Tell me something that I don't know
Thank God for Deathloop today because this Fall is a bit lackluster.
I’m a little sad but I’m not too upset. I have PLENTY of titles to hold me over this holiday alone. That doesn’t even include my massive library I still have to finish.
Man I planned my vacation for this game smh!!! I guest I got to play Battlefield 2042, and not much else lol!!! 2021 looking lackluster than 2020.
Talk going around to expect DICE to announce BF will be delayed to 2022 This is coming from multiple sources
Only to November they confirmed though.
As long as we don't have another Cyberpunk debacle I'm ok with this
Highly worried about this game at this point.
Rather have it pushed back have the spit and polish then released with bugs
Wait till you see it delayed AND released with bugs.
That is a bummer this was pretty much the main title I was looking forward to this Christmas. Guess it's not back 4 blood.
OH FOR FUCKS SAKE!!!!!!!!!
This is why I was okay with no firm release dates from the Playstation showcase. They get bit hard with all the delays when you give a release date so early it puts you in a bad spot.
Wow. Just let it die already
Good. Take whatever time is needed to get it right. The whining due to a delayed game is preferable to releasing a broken one.
So it should be a better game after the delay then
Maybe they can patch PS4 version to 60 fps in the meantime.
I wish but I doubt it.
Probably busy with the Switch port of the first game
Haha the PS4 version is probably running at like mid-20s fps on base PS4.
What do you think frame rate will be on the Switch version?
@Yui_Suzumiya I don't think they'll put the second game on the Switch. My guess with the first one is that it will be 30 with frequent dips. Probably similar to the Witcher 3 on there, which is playable but hardly the best place to play it. If they can keep it locked at 30 I'll be very impressed.
Damn the ads on this website are the worst..... anyway I've been trying to say thats a shame...what's the point in e3 if everything shown always gets delayed...urgh oh well better than it being broken.
@ashunderfire...yeah it will squash cod...but only if if works,and damn I hope we don't end up with a " we at EA are sorry we can't get 128 players working for the foreseeable future,so you'll have to settle for 64playes on nex-gen"[email protected] price of course.💸💰
By the time this gets released we'll have Dead Island 2 out.
