"so close to realizing our initial vision"
Publisher Warner Bros. and developer Techland, the developer of games like 'Dead Island,' have announced that their first-person survival horror title, 'Dying Light' will not be shipping this summer, or even this year. The new release window for the cross-generational title is February 2015. 'Dying Light' is being built with the studios Chrome Engine 6, and bringing that engine to the PS4 and Xbox One may be at the center of the need for extra time.
From the 'Dying Light' Team, "When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation. We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open world games. After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready."
"We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing too early. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first."
"The new date ensures that we can fully realize our vision of an innovative open world game. We won’t need to make compromises or trade-offs on any of the five platforms we’re working on. For you, it means an outstanding, original game that makes the wait more than worthwhile."
