Techland just announced that Dying Light 2 has has been delayed. Originally slated to release sometime in Spring 2020, the game no longer has a release window. In the announcement, Techland states the team needs more development time to fulfill its vision for the game and the company will be sharing more in the coming months. You can read Techland's full statement below.

Dying Light 2 is an ambitious game, aiming to include far more gameplay systems in a denser world than the first title. This time around, the player's choices affect the city and its inhabitants, while the infection appears to have evolved in mysterious ways, as you can see in the 30 minute gameplay demo Techland released last year.

The first Dying Light has sold well over 13 million copies, so it's understandable why Techland wants to take as long as is needed for the sequel.
