Today during an interview with Eurogamer during the Digital Dragons conference Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka hinted that Dying Light 2 might be in the works.
In the interview Marchewka mentioned that Techland has two new games that have been in development for over a year. The first game is in development at Techland’s studio in Warsaw and will be a new fantasy IP. The game will be an open world game with RPG elements, single-player and multiplayer co-op. Anyone who played Dying Light knows that what Marchewka just described sounds a lot like the game, but that isn’t the only hint that was given.
The second game is currently in development in Wrocław, the same studio that made Dying Light, and while no information was given on the game Dying Light 2 did come up.
When Eurogamer asked if the game being developed at Wrocław was Dying Light 2, Marchewka just smiled and said “can’t say that”.
It does make sense that Techland would have a sequel in the works. Dying Light was a huge success for the company says Marchewka, with the game having around eight million unique players, not including the three million playing on a pirated version.
As for when fans can expect to play these games, Machewka estimates that they will be released “within three years”.
Currently Techland is getting the chance to work on the Dead Island remaster, one of their old IPs before owner Deep Silver handed the franchise off to Yager and then Sumo for Dead Island 2. The game is called Dead Island: The Definitive Edition and will come out on May 31st for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
