Game news Dying Light 2: what future for the game after release? Answer with our interview
Dying Light 2 Stay Human ended on February 4th, 2022. To mark the occasion, the JV editorial team had the opportunity to speak with Dawid Lubryka, Animation Director at Techland. The latter has shared with us his feelings on the release as well as the studio’s plans for the future of the franchise.
Are you happy with the start of the game?
Yes the game was well received, we’re glad it came out.
As we said for DL1, we plan to support and develop the game for many years. Since it’s in production, it’s difficult to predict exactly what the community will need or want. Once the game is out, we’ll listen to the community’s feedback and then be able to make much more informed decisions. Dying Light 2 Stay Human provides an excellent foundation for the future development of the franchise and all updates and new content.
The first Dying Light had a lot of content, what are your goals with this one?
We plan to push the game forward for the next 5 years, we will release at least two big DLCs in 2022, in addition to tons of additional content, for example events or skin packs. We will continue to patch the game to fix potential issues and improve quality.
The day/night cycle offers its own gameplay, where did the idea come from?
It started with Dying Light 1, it’s actually ingrained in the title of the game. When the light “dies” comes the terror of the night. In fact, the night in Dying Light 1 was too scary for too many players, and many people skipped it. In Dying Light 2 Stay Human we wanted to balance that and give players more incentive to continue playing at night, so we have a lot of content specific to day and night play. This was a natural outgrowth of how the story unfolded: the infected are sensitive to light, so they try to move away from it so they can stay indoors during the day and get out of them safely at night to have a better chance of finding loot. This creates a lot of variation in gameplay, but there’s a lot more.
Do you have something special to say to our community?
We’ve been busy releasing the game, but rest assured that we’re not resting on our laurels, we’re working hard to resolve issues reported by the community. The game is here, but it will continue to grow and improve. And we also want to thank our fans for the great reception of the game, we really appreciate the support.
