My goodness, Techland doesn’t shy away from making impressive-sounding promises, right? The Polish developer surprised last week when it claimed that Dying Light 2 would take 500 hours to “complete”, something the studio had to clarify just a couple of days later. And now, Techland says that Dying Light 2 will be compatible with updates and DLC… for five whole years. Woof.
This is also not totally unprecedented. The first Dying Light, released in 2015, continued to receive updates years after release, and we’re still waiting for the promised PlayStation 5 patch!
Now look, we don’t expect Techland to flood Dying Light 2 with new content non-stop for five years, that would be crazy. But it seems that the company has big plans for the next open world adventure. It will be interesting to see how much of a ‘live service’ experience Dying Light 2 turns out to be, potentially flaunting things like limited-time events and daily quests.
In any case, we have a seemingly huge game that is only going to get bigger. How do you feel about that? Better start preparing for the zombie hordes in the comments section below.
