You don’t have to wait any longer to “stay human”. Dying Light 2 is coming February 2022, and the parkour survival sequel just went gold – so there won’t be any more delays.
“Going Gold” is the term used in the industry when a game has reached a finished and fully playable state and is pressed to disc. As announced on Twitter, this is happening now for Dying Light, 2 which means there is no withdrawal from the planned release date. Developer Techland also promises that he will “spend more time [to] deliver the best possible experience ”, so at worst we could end up with the day one patch for the game.

Now the release date is locked: February 4 on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Note that the Switch version will be playable via the cloud.
As for what fans can expect from the sequel, it’s packed with new weapon mechanics to help fight the undead. A recent development blog also detailed the game’s various factions, such as the Peacekeepers. The sometimes extreme militaristic organizing could be a blessing or a boon when playing Dying Light 2.
