News has just come that the Dying Light 2 distributor has been changed. Developer Techland announced on Twitter today that they were proud to be partnering with Square Enix, rather than Warner Bros. The previous Dying Light game had Warner Bros as a distributor, but who knows why the sudden switch has been made.
Dying Light 2 is the sequel to the original Dying Light, taking place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity must rebuild after the previous game’s zombie apocalypse. While the zombies are still around, players now have to make decisions to help humanity recover.
That’s really all we know about Dying Light 2 barring a few minor things. While it was first unveiled at E3 2018’s Microsoft conference, we’ll be getting more information about it at this year’s E3. Square Enix, as the new Dying Light 2 distributor, will be handling that.
Considering it’s the sequel to an already-popular game that actually worked to do something new with the zombie survival genre, Dying Light 2 is in a pretty good position to be a big success, as long as Techland can make it better than the first.
While Dying Light 2 will retain the original’s main draws (various mutated zombies that can come out at night or day, parkour to get around), the added choice system to help humanity rebuild, along with any other mechanics that haven’t yet been announced, will also have to work well.
All of the possible choices also means a lot more content. Techland even claimed that in order to get everything, players would have to be in for the long haul, going through multiple playthroughs.
Either way, there’s a lot that we could be shown at this year’s E3, and Square Enix will hopefully use its status as the new Dying Light 2 distributor to promote the game properly and get people excited, not only via gameplay but also the big question: a release date.
Dying Light 2 will be releasing on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
