Pawel Selinger, who is the current art director and lead writer for Dying Light 2, has announced he will be leaving Techland after 22 years. While he hasn’t said exactly what he plans to do now, I hope his departure doesn’t negatively affect the development of the game, especially since we still don’t have a release date. .
Dying Light 2 has promised to be bigger than the original Dying Light in many ways, especially as players will have to rebuild society in the wake of a zombie apocalypse. It requires tough decisions that could lead to a wide variety of results.
While the game still doesn’t have a release date, I hope Selinger’s departure doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with Techland. Over the past few years, various other developers have had to leave their studios during game development for personal reasons, such as with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Nothing seems to be going wrong at Techland, although his departure casts a bit more suspicion on the exact release date of the game. Without an art director and lead writer for Dying Light 2, it’s a big loss for the team. development, unless the script and art direction have been finalized.
Either that or there is already a new art director for the title, and Selinger stuck around just long enough for that to be finalized before he left. Either way, however it worked out, I hope Selinger’s departure doesn’t have a negative effect on the game.
While there hasn’t been a real release date since it was first announced, Dying Light 2 is still the sequel to a fairly popular game and is bigger than it was by several orders of greatness apparently.
Hopefully, with a new art director for Dying Light 2 and a new lead writer, we’ll end up getting more concrete information on a release date at some point in the future. In the meantime, all we know is that Dying Light 2 is slated for release on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox Series X, and Playstation 5 this year.
