Today, Dying Light 2 finally re-emerged from the shadows with a new trailer and a release date. We haven't seen or heard much from the sequel announced all the way back at E3 2018, but today that changed during a special Twitch stream dedicated to what is more a less a re-reveal of the zombies parkour game, which is now called Dying Light 2: Stay Human and which is set to finally release later this year on December 7, 2021.
While it's been a few years since we've seen Dying Light 2 -- and while it now boasts a new name -- it more or less looks the same, which is to say like more Dying Light, but with a bump in visual fidelity and far more ambition.
Of course, you never expect a game to look radically different from reveal to re-reveal, but according to various reports, the game has had some development issues, and the drawn-out silence only reinforces these reports. That said, even if the game did experience a bit of development hell, it's not reflected in the product. The game looks great, but only will tell if it's going to make good on all of this potential.
Dying Light 2 will be available via the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S when it launches.
