Dying Light 2 is the latest game to see its release date pushed back. In a statement issued earlier today, Pawel Marchewka, CEO of developer Techland, confirmed that the game wouldn't hit its spring 2020 release date.
The statements reads "it was a busy year for us as we continued working on our biggest project to date. We know you are awaiting the game eagerly, and we want to deliver exactly what we promised. We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfil our vision."

More information is set to arrive in the coming months, but at time of writing, there's little to go on. While other high-profile delays - namely those of Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII, and Marvel's Avengers - were all provided new release dates, Techland is yet to offer a new date. That's not too surprising, as that spring 2020 release window is all we had to go on until now, but it's likely to mean a substantial delay. From what Marcheka says in his statement, I wouldn't expect to see Dying Light 2 arrive until autumn at least.
