We know you’ve been waiting on a Dying Light release date for quite
some time now. After careful consideration, we have decided to release our
upcoming game in February 2015. Since this means Dying Light will launch a few
months later than originally planned, we feel obliged to explain the reasons
that influenced this important decision.
When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation.
We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open-world games.
After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to
realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready.
We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect
from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing
too early. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices
and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.
The new date ensures that we can fully realize our vision of an innovative
open-world game. We won’t need to make compromises or trade-offs on any of the
five platforms we’re working on. For you, it means an outstanding, original game
that makes the wait more than worthwhile.
