‘Dying Light’ Gets Delayed To February 2015

Techland has announced its open world zombie survival game, Dying Light will be pushed back to a February 2015 release date.

“After careful consideration,” Techland writes in a press release, “we have decided to release our upcoming game in February 2015. Since this means Dying Light will launch a few months later than originally planned, we feel obliged to explain the reasons that influenced this important decision.

“When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation. 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.”

 “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. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.”
The “Natural Movement” Techland speaks of is a rather crucial part of the game with it being an open-world game with no vehicles (at least that we’ve seen) where people must rely on getting around physically via free-running in a very Mirror’s Edge kind of way so it’s probably best they get it right.
Dying Light was originally slated for a release sometime this year but its launch date was always ambiguous and uncertain.
