If you were hoping to take the free-running, zombie-slaying smorgasbord Dying Light 2 for a spin this holiday season, you may want to check for lumps of coal in your stocking.
Like most releases that were supposed to drop this year, the upcoming Techland-produced sequel has been delayed yet again to February 2022.
The official Dying Twitter account posted an update today, explaining that the new release date is now February 4, 2022.
“The team is steadily progressing with the production and the game is nearing the finish line,” the post reads. “The game is complete and we are currently playtesting it. It is by far the biggest and the most ambitious project we’ve ever done. Unfortunately, we’ve realized for us to bring the game to the level we envision, we need more time to polish and optimize it.”
This joins various other releases that won’t release until next year, including the recently delayed Horizon Forbidden West sequel for PS5.
“We are sorry to keep you waiting a little longer, but we want the game to meet your highest expectations on release and we don’t want to compromise on this.”
They thanked the fans and advised them to “Stay Human” with the wait.
This does hurt a bit, and takes one more big release out of Square Enix’s line-up for the holiday season. But hopefully, once it does arrive (finally), it’ll be for the better.
