Well, at least it's not cancelled. You don't hype up a cancellation announcement.

It will probably still be far away and I have absolutely no doubts in my mind that they've drastically scaled it back from what was originally promised, and which seemed way too ambitious at the time. But I'm still in, the first is a real hidden gem.

Maybe i'm imagining things but the tone of that message sounds sombre. If you were getting back into a marketing cycle with this game you would have a bit more excitement then just 'a few words'. I really loved the first Dying Light and my most anticipated game this generation was it's sequel. I hope all is good
I'm sure it's probably something that has some positivity to it. Especially since they added that little video. If there was nothing added to that post I'd be more concerned TBH, haha. Guess we'll find out soon enough!

St Patrick's Day edition announced. Puking in the streets and angry drunks trying to attack you. I'm fucking in. The town littered with fucking skangers you bash with a hurl.

Probably a dev update to come out ahead of another terrible press annoucement or someone important quitting.

No faith in this game or this company, feels like Bloodlines 2 development except they haven't surrendered to their own incompetence yet.
 
We'll see about that development hell. It's normal for some people leave mid a project, but I heard many key positions were lost during Dying Light 2 development, so I won't swallow that just now. Either way, let's hope for the best.

Got a thread here


Although it's nice to see developers outright saying that they announced a game too soon

Yeah, the video sucked, but I still have hope after that brief snippet at the end. I don't need the greatest game since Mario Slices Bread, I just need a sequel that builds upon what made the first such a neat little gem.

I bet it's absolutely nothing like they said it would be in that original reveal though, when they claimed it would have some ridiculous sprawling branching narrative and an entire world that changes or some shit.
