Techland publishes a Memetic Dying Light 2 update
Dying Light 2 was initially announced in 2018, but the Techland developer has been shy on details lately. Initially planned for an outing in 2020, the game was delayed indefinitely in January of last year. Although we know that the game will be greater than prequel, with a story that branches significantly, to the point where whole areas of the city are cut according to your decisions throughout the game.
However, players are an impatient group. Just look at the vitriol launched on Cyberpunk 2077 for its many delays, finally leading to a sloppy and bogged version. Techland does not take this direction, however, if the video above is something to do.
The video is not a real update, but in the era of teasers, call it… Finally, a teaser update? The video begins, in the tradition of “celebrities read nasty tweets” or “celebrities read thirst tweets”, team members reading tweets received from fans upset by the many delays in the game. The video continues In a statement before the revelation of a few seconds of (magnificent) images, including a new breed of zombies.
However, some have claimed that the video leans too far in the other direction, to the point of normalizing the toxic behavior of certain fans, or even rewarding it by giving them a reward in the form of new revelations.
Some journalists report that Techland risks repeating the errors of CD Projekt Red, because many reports report toxic work culture within Techland and claim that the game is lacking in management and that the team has trouble holding His own promises.
What will the game look like when it was released? Well, we don’t know. After all, Cyberpunk 2077 turned out to be a historic flop, but we had good reasons to be excited. All we know with certainty is that developers are also people and must be treated as such.
