First major Dying Light 2 story DLC delayed until fall

In the interest of both polish and quality, Techland has decided to delay its first major story DLC for Dying Light 2.

Here’s what they had to say on the matter:

Dear Pilgrims,

Your feedback has always been our top priority. That’s why, at Techland, we strive to be as open and as honest with you as possible.

Over the last few months, we have focused on adding some of your most requested features, such as New Game + mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements. On top of that, in June, we will introduce the first game Chapter entitled “In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,” filled with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode.

That being said, we need a bit more time to develop the first story DLC, which is now planned to be released in September.

We apologize for the delay, but we firmly believe that our community, fans, and gamers deserve to receive some truly unforgettable experiences.

We want the first major story DLC to meet your expectations by giving it the absolute highest level of polish.

Thank you for your trust and support,


This means that Dying Light 2 will now receive its first major story add-on in September. That’s honestly ok with us, as it’ll give us time to finish the game. Plus, while delays suck, polish is critical.
