The Polish developer showed us Hellraid at last year's E3, a dark fantasy first person RPG with four player co-op. Since the unmitigated success of Dying Light, Techland has raised their expectations for Hellraid, stating that the game had been put on hold. It turns out that this wasn't entirely accurate.
Techland posted the following statement on the official Hellraid website. Hellraid was previously slated for 2014 'Early Access' Steam launch, and a full PS4/Xbox One/PC launch in 2015.
Those comments have been further clarified by Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka, who told Eurogamer that Techland's efforts are merely focussed on supporting Dying Light's 4.5 million active players.
Considering the success and quality of Dying Light, I know my personal expectations of the dev are higher than they were back when they shipped Dead Island. I'm sure the millions of new Techland fans will be happy to hear that Hellraid isn't cancelled.
