When is the Dying Light 2 release date? Techland announced the sequel to their parkour zombie game back at E3 2018. Four laters later it’s still not been released, but hope is on the horizon – you won’t have to wait much longer.
We’ve seen plenty of details about the game’s gameplay, setting, and story, plus a few gameplay trailers. Techland is massively expanding on Dying Light 1’s parkour movement – it’s safe to say that this isn’t going to be your typical undead shooter.
Dying Light 2 is set in a decaying city that is struggling to keep itself together amid competing factions, so you will have a lot more to deal with than undead monstrosities. The decisions you make and the groups you team up with will shape the world around you, allowing you to reap the ensuing rewards if you can stomach the consequences. Here are all the latest details about Dying Light 2, including the Dying Light 2 release date and the latest trailers.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human release times
Dying Light 2 will release on February 3 at 4pm PST / 7pm EST, and midnight GMT on February 4.
Dying Light 2 previously had a release window of spring 2020, before Techland announced that it had been delayed indefinitely. Since then, Techland pushed back on reports that Dying Light 2 is in development hell. The delay was announced via the official Dying Light 2 Twitter account. A further delay was announced moving the December 2021 release date to early 2022; you can read the full statement below:

Dying Light 2 review
Read our Dying Light 2 review for what we thought about the game. You can also read this round up of other Dying Light 2 reviews.
Dying Light 2 multiplayer
Dying Light might have had co-op but, Dying Light 2’s multiplayer does things differently. Four-player co-op returns but, this time, three players must join one host’s game due to the decision-based narrative.

Central to Dying Light 2’s story is that of choices that have consequence for the world around you. Factions you side with might become dominant, painting the town red (or whatever colour they choose), as well as offering you new parkour routes and trading opportunities. That means your Dying Light 2 world will be unique to you, and the practicalities of that in co-op are still to be finalised.
DYING LIGHT 2 DLC
Smektala confirmed plans for post-launch content for Dying Light 2, he says that plans have already been made for years of support.
This comes as no surprise to Dying Light 1 players, as Techland continue to provide support since 2015, including The Following expansion pack in 2016. Although plans haven’t yet been specified for Dying Light 2 DLC, we are rest assured that Smektala knows we’re eager for content updates in his promise to deliver fans just that.

And there you have it – everything we know about Dying Light 2 so far. If you’re wondering how long Dying Light 2 is, it reportedly has over 500 hours of content. Although the campaign is said to clock in at 15-20 hours, Smektala previously revealed that you’ll only see roughly 50% of Dying Light 2 on your first playthrough.
