Techland today announced that Dying Light 2 Stay Human has entered the final production status ahead of its launch, going gold.
A game hits golden status once it’s finally ready to be published and discs can start being manufactured. This is a major milestone for a project that had been hit with numerous delays since its initial reveal at E3 2018. However, rather than rush out an unfinished product, Techland opted to delay the game into 2022. That patience seems to be paying off. Not only is the game gold two months early, but it also allows Techland to continue working and prepare updates ahead of time.
“We are very excited about this and now we can truly feel that this is actually happening! After so many years of hard work we are proudly looking forward to the release of Dying Light 2 Stay Human.” said Tymon Smektała, Lead Game Designer.
“This is it. The final and crucial moment for us. The game is ready to be manufactured, but we will not slow down. The fact that the game is done and we hit the gold status two months before the release is a great sign but it doesn’t mean that our work ends here. There are still some upgrades and tweaks to add, and community feedback to implement, but the base is solid and ready to play. I’m extremely proud of the whole team!”
This announcement arrives ahead of a brand new gameplay premiere on December 2 at 12pm PT. During this next Dying 2 Know episode, fans can expect to see 15 minutes of brand new gameplay.
Dying Light 2 Stay Human launches February 4, 2022 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch (Cloud Version).
