Dying Light 2 will get additional content for the next five years
Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been in development for six years and has gone through a series of delays and several controversial situations. In less than a month we should finally get the game in our hands and see what Techland has been working on for so long. Best of all, the Polish development studio will not stop there, but will actively add additional content to the title for at least the next five years.
Dying Light 2 will thus receive content that includes expansions, various thematic events, new areas on the map, stories, and the like. Not surprisingly, one of the reasons for the great success of the first Dying Light has been Techland’s continued support since the game’s release in 2015. This proved to be a winning combination so the development studio will continue at the same pace in the sequel. If it will stick strictly to the same path as with the first part, who knows - maybe as early as 2023 they will release the first big expansion, as was the case with The Following.
Want to know what will happen AFTER the premiere?

The past week has been tumultuous at Techland’s address. They first announced that it would take 500 hours to completely complete the game, which led to a series of negative reactions from people. Then they went to fix everything by announcing that the story will last 20 hours, and 500 only if the players want to find all possible collectibles, go through dialogues, find out the consequences, discover all locations, etc. However, the damage has already been done so some other developers have started announcing the duration of the transition of their upcoming games as a mockery of Techland’s attempt at the sensation.
The last episode of the Dying 2 Know show aired on Thursday where we learned a few new details about the upcoming title. We saw the new gameplay trailer and got more information about the cooperative gameplay system. But even though the Dying 2 Know show has come to an end, that doesn’t mean there won’t be new views on the game as the Polish studio has promised to deliver a multi-minute display of gameplay on consoles by the end of the month.
