This Light Will Not Die
Dying Light 2 is still about a half a year away, but people already want to know about post-launch support and content. The first Dying Light game had a surprising longevity. That is because developer Techland had been rolling out content for years following its launch. That is exactly the plan with the Dying Light 2 DLC. In an interview with Prankster101, Dying Light 2’s lead game designer Tymon Smektala spoke about the short and long term plans for the upcoming game.
Part of game’s success is often relying on how long a fanbase stays with it, and for people to stay, it must be supported by the developers. Just think about games like GTA V or WoW or Fortnite. These games aren’t new, but they are some of the most popular today because they keep getting updated and expanded with DLC. When asked about DLC for Dying Light 2, Smektala said that it would be supported for at least four years, just like Dying Light 1 was. “Dying Light 1 was supported for 4 years after its release, and the plan for Dying Light 2 is exactly the same. We want this game to be supported after its release. We know that a lot of fans will be waiting for DLCs, updates, extra stuff they can get their hands on. And we promise to deliver them just that.”
Even earlier this year, Techland had a small group of people committed to updating the first Dying Light while others were deep into Dying Light 2. Dying Light 2 will be released in Spring 2020 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
