Techland confirms Dying Light 2 lead writer has left but says ‘exciting news’ is coming

Reports that the craftsmanship chief has withdrawn the studio are wrong.

2020 was a harsh year for the zombie parkour game Dying Light 2. It came out solid at E3 2018 with a garish trailer and Chris Avellone’s name connected, however a normal delivery in spring 2020 was postponed in January of that year, and Avellone was seen out a while later after claims of sexual offense. At that point, recently, it became known that lead essayist Pawel Selinger had headed out in different directions with engineer Techland, conceivably terrible news for a game that actually doesn’t have another delivery date.

“After more than 22 years, I chose to end my collaboration with Techland,” Selinger composed on his LinkedIn page (through Gaming Route). “I might want to offer my thanks to the organization that has permitted me to create and satisfy myself for half of my life. Techland, I will consistently be pulling for you, just as the incredible individuals I have met because of you. I wish you that Dying light 2 and resulting ventures will become world hits.”

In an assertion, Techland affirmed that Selinger has surely left the organization, yet explained that his part as account architect had been filled a few months before his flight.

“Paweł Selinger, who has been the Narration Designer throughout the previous two years, chosen toward the finish of 2020 to end his participation with Techland and to seek after his further profession somewhere else,” a studio rep said. “Paweł burned through the greater part of his expert life at Techland and he, among others, assumes praise for the achievement of the arrangement Call of Juarez. He left a huge bit of himself with Dying Light 2, as he chipped away at the task from the earliest starting point. His obligations, ie. the story office, were taken over by Piotr Szymanek in October 2020.”

Techland additionally said that regardless of certain reports, its specialty chief has not left the organization. The disarray on that point probably emerges from Selinger’s LinkedIn profile, which records him as the studio’s specialty chief from 2007 to February 2009.

“We might want to console all enthusiasts of the forthcoming Dying Light 2 that the situation of Art Director isn’t compromised and has been held by Eric Cochonneau since November 2019. Eric has been dealing with each part of the impending creation from that point onward and the group under his initiative is putting forth a valiant effort to offer players the most ideal game,” the rep said.

So fortunately it doesn’t seem as though Selinger’s flight will bring about a significant interruption of Dying Light 2’s turn of events, however the terrible news is that a year after its 2020 deferral, we have no clue about what the real condition of that advancement is, there’s still no indication of a delivery date. That might be evolving soon, nonetheless: The rep added that Techland “will be sharing energizing information about Dying Light 2 soon!”
