Dying Light 2 Stay Human, the popular zombie and parkour game from developer and publisher Techland, has officially delayed DLC2 until next year. According to a new blog post with full details, the devs require more time to ensure “the game meets and exceeds expectations”. However, they elaborate that there are also “more things to add”.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available now on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store, as well as PlayStation and Xbox. Most recently, the game introduced an Undead or Alive event to celebrate a Call of Juarez anniversary. You can watch a trailer for the new event on the Dying Light 2 YouTube channel:

While the delay of DLC2 might be disappointing, the devs have also announced that a livestream on June 29th will explain more details about the DLC and other upcoming events. An AMA on Discord is set for next week on June 16th. But today’s blog makes it pretty clear that fans won’t get an answer at that time.

At the very least, it’s encouraging that today’s announcement explained that the devs delayed the DLC in order to add even more content, rather than just some polishing. This raises expectations, and the DLC will now have to justify the wait.

It was already set to include a new map. Since parkour is surely the biggest highlight of Dying Light 2, a new map could have been more than enough. The layout has to be carefully designed to create natural, flowing paths that feel satisfying to master while maintaining a sense of freedom.

The devs have already done a decent job of supporting the game, and the Gut Feeling update fixed up some real concerns. There will surely continue to be helpful improvements until DLC2 releases.
