Normally, I would look at these things and see then as overly ambitious. Tech land, however, has done an amazing job of not letting their game rot from neglect. They've still been havungbmini-events and small DLC releases for a game released 5+ years ago, whose successor was supposed to be out quite a while ago. They've done a passable job supporting a game that didn't really need it (looking at you, Over watch team). I'm willing to assume these guys will do right by their game, despite the delays. Their commitment to doing ANYTHING for the players of Dying Light, so it isn't forgotten, is commendable.
Latest entry in the series... It's the 2nd lol. That aside I can't wait for this game. Techland did a fantastic job on the original. They are still updating it with free or cheap DLC as well as fixes should any bugs pop up. Ive played this game more than almost any other which may sound odd but it's just an enjoyable game. The traversal mechanics are a ton of fun, the combat is fun but challenging, the weapons are creative and there is an insane amount of them.. I have no doubt in my mind that dying light 2 will be supported just as much as the original if not more. I'm assuming the delays were mostly to allow hardware to catch up with their vision. They weren't willing to compromise and I thank them for that.
