After Dying Light 2, Techland will dive into the fantasy. For its next AAA open-world game, the Polish studio relies on the expertise of The Witcher 3 veterans.
Certainly confident with Dying Light 2’s rapid launch and its 5 million copies sold in just a few short weeks, Techland is already looking to the future. While part of its team is working on the DLC for its latest game, the Polish studio is busy with its next big production. And no, it won’t be Dying Light 3.
From The Witcher 3 veterans to Techland’s fantasy game
Techland announced in a press release that it is working on its next one. Obviously, this time it won’t be about zombies, but about a whole new open world that takes place in a fantastic universe. To realize this new project, which has been on the mind of the Polish studio for a long time, the creators of Dying Light can count on the support of several The Witcher 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 veterans.
Among the teams assigned to this new game was Karolina Stachyra, who officiated on The Witcher 3’s quests and dialogue and is working as Director of Narration on this title. At his side Bartosz Ochman, director of the open world of the last two CD Projekt Red games, but also alumni from Ubisoft, Guerrilla Games, Arkane Studios or Warner Bros.
By talking about this project so early, Techland clearly hopes to attract industry talent to strengthen its ranks. ” Despite the release of Dying Light 2 Stay Human this year and its intense production over the past year, Techland has continued development on its next game and now is the best time to significantly expand its team. ‘ explains the press release.
