  • funny I have been seeing a lot of ads to pre order it past couple days, like they knew they were about to drop this info. I loved the first but this feels like cyberpunk all over again.
  • Cyberpunk, now, is a great game, mostly bug free. The lesson from Cyberpunk is: don't release until it's really ready, regardless if people complain and demand an immediate release. If this delay ensures the game releases at a good quality, then good for them for ensuring a positive experience among players when they do finally get their hands on the game.
  • I totally agree make sure it's ready before release 👍
  • Cyberpunk on pc had been pretty good for me even before the last major patches, but yes I agree with releasing when ready. I loved the first dying light and want to love the second one too.
  • No surprise here. I feel like every game I'm excited for just ends up getting delayed over and over.
