Reports that the craftsmanship chief has left 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 gaudy trailer and Chris Avellone’s name connected, yet a normal delivery in spring 2020 was postponed in January of that year, and Avellone was seen out a while later after charges of sexual unfortunate behavior. At that point, recently, it became visible that lead author Pawel Selinger had headed out in different directions with engineer Techland, possibly awful 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 (by means of 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 on account of you. I wish you that Dying light 2 and ensuing undertakings will become world hits.”
In an assertion, Techland affirmed that Selinger has for sure left the organization, yet explained that his job as story originator had been filled a few months preceding his takeoff.
“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 vast majority of his expert life at Techland and he, among others, assumes acknowledgment for the achievement of the arrangement Call of Juarez. He left an enormous 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 in spite 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 devotees 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 forthcoming creation from that point onward and the group under his administration is giving 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 disturbance of Dying Light 2’s turn of events, yet the terrible news is that a year after its 2020 deferral, we have no clue about what the genuine condition of that advancement is, there’s still no indication of a delivery date. That might be evolving soon, in any case: The rep added that Techland “will be sharing energizing information about Dying Light 2 soon!”
