Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been delayed to February 4th, 2022, Techland confirmed on social media.
The game was previously slated for release in December 2021, but the delay is about a couple of months. Explaining the delay, Techland said Dying Light 2 is complete and the team is not playtesting it. However, due to the ambitious nature of the game, the studio determined that it needed more time to polish the game and optimization to “bring the game to the level we envision.” You can check out the tweet below:

You're the best community I've ever worked with. 🥰— Dying Light (@DyingLightGame) September 14, 2021
The statement goes on to say, “We are sorry to keep you all waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this.” Techland then said it will invite press and content creators to play the game next month and share their thoughts. It also says the studio will have “some exciting news” to reveal later this month.
February 2022 is shaping to be a massive month for new releases. We got Dying Light 2, Horizon Forbidden West, Saint Row’s reboot, Situ, and The King of Fighters XV.
