Dying Light’s first major expansion, The Following, released last week to a warm reception across the board. Today, developers Techland issued an open letter to critics and players alike which thanked everyone who’s played so far for their feedback. It also promised to support the game with new content until the end of the year, “to make sure that every new or veteran player gets all the fun they deserve.”

The letter, written by Techland’s CEO Pawel Marchewka via email, urges players to share any thoughts and criticism that they might have about both The Following and the recently launched Enhanced Edition - assuming they haven’t done so already.
“We always had faith in the project, but seeing so many enthusiastic opinions among players and high review scores from the press is utterly heart-warming,” says Marchewka. “At the same time it is a clear sign that there is still high demand for that unique Dying Light experience.
“To make sure that every new or veteran player gets all the fun they deserve, we have decided to continue our support for Dying Light at least till the end of this year. We are already working on new unannounced content, so stay tuned for our future news.”
The letter goes on to say that the reason player feedback is so important at this stage is because it will help the Polish outfit steer which direction the game heads in next. “ We strongly believe in active collaboration between our design team and you,” Marchewka says. “Players who every day fight for survival in the world of Dying Light.”
I for one love Dying Light, but the “accolades trailer” that also released alongside Marchewka's letter is a bit on the self-indulgent side nevertheless:
