Dying Light Pushed Back Until 2015

Dying Light will be releasing in February 2015.

The new release window was revealed earlier today in a release from the game’s developers at Techland. This will, of course, be a delay from the studio’s original plans to have it hit retail before the end of 2014. The delay, according to Techland, is to ensure that it can deliver the highest quality product possible.

“When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation,” said the Dying Light team in a statement. “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.”

At the center of the decision is apparently the game’s parkour-like Natural Movement system.

“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,” affirmed the team. “This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.”

The team ended its statement by stating it had plans to start releasing more frequent details about the game, beginning next month with E3 2014.

No surprise there +1 added to the developers list who cant bring out a game on time. Look at Rockstar (GTA V), Ubisoft (Watch Dogs), SquareEnix (Tomb Raider), CD Projekt RED (The Witcher 3) and many more its becoming a joke these days. Don’t give the game a f*cking release date if you cant make it and if you do and don’t/cant bring it out on time don’t continue to charge loads for a game you couldn’t get out on time. It’s immorally disgusting!

Developers/Publishers if it costs you more keeping games in production such as this its down to you guys not getting enough done to get it up to par for your original release date. Don’t make the gamer the looser in this by paying a ridiculous full price when every month goes by after being delayed you should knock off some of the cost for each month its late. Even still make a demo, it will give the gamer a valid reason to wait and chances Piracy may decrease! Make it worth the price you sell it for!

That’s dumb.

“Make it worth the price you sell it for” is exactly what they’re trying to do.

There’s absolutely nothing “immorally disgusting” about a company trying to make a game as good as possible. Sometimes crap happens, and sometimes things take longer than originally intended/expected.
