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.
