Polish developer Techland has announced that the highly anticipated sequel, Dying Light 2: Stay Human, has gone gold ahead of its February release date.
In case you're not familiar with the term, going “gold” means a game is finally ready to be published and printed onto discs, ready for release, although in the modern era of day one updates, plenty of work still needs to be done to get the game up to snuff.
“We are very excited about this and now we can truly feel that this is actually happening! After so many years of hard work we are proudly looking forward to the release of Dying Light 2 Stay Human.” said lead designer Tymon Smektała.
“This is it. The final and crucial moment for us. The game is ready to be manufactured, but we will not slow down. The fact that the game is done and we hit the gold status two months before the release is a great sign but it doesn’t mean that our work ends here. There are still some upgrades and tweaks to add, and community feedback to implement, but the base is solid and ready to play. I’m extremely proud of the whole team!”
Dying Light 2 was originally due to launch this year, before being delayed into February 2022. The game going gold should now mean it faces no further delays, although Cyberpunk 2077 rather famously bucked that trend last year, so we'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, we recently went hands-on with Dying Light 2, and you can read our preview here.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human is due to launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC on 4th February 2022.
