Dying Light 2 is scheduled to go reside in only a few days—February 4, to be exact. However, as typically occurs, plainly retail copies have began slipping out early. Developer Techland stated on Twitter that it appreciates the keenness, however would like it if everybody may simply maintain off taking part in it till the sport is definitely launched.
“Fellow survivors, we see that a few of you bought an entry to the retail copies of Dying Gentle 2 earlier than the discharge date (it’s this Friday, solely 3 days left!),” the studio wrote. “We perceive you need to begin exploring the Metropolis ASAP and we couldn’t be happier!”
“That being stated, we kindly ask you to attend till Feb 4th as by that point you’ll additionally get entry to all enhancements and fixes we’ve applied inside final weeks and can introduce with the day 1 patch. That’s the way in which to expertise Dying Gentle 2 the way in which it’s meant to be performed.”

The plea would possibly work if this was BioShock—would you kindly simply play one thing else till the weekend?—however my suspicion is that Techland’s request shouldn’t be prone to be heeded by most. If any individual arms you the sport you have been ready months (or years) to play a couple of days earlier than you are alleged to, odds are that you just’re not going to sit down on it simply because the builders ask properly, proper?
It isn’t clear how widespread the difficulty is or on what platforms, though the pictures I’ve seen on Reddit are for console editions—not shocking, actually, on condition that consoles are nonetheless much more retail-reliant than PC. As for the way it occurred, Techland hasn’t commented however my guess is that it is an sincere mistake. Overworked, underpaid retail workers have rather a lot to cope with, and talking from expertise I can let you know that it is simpler than you would possibly assume to overlook a “don’t promote earlier than” label on a small, plain field—particularly if that field is jammed in with a pile of different containers that you just’re anticipated to get on the cabinets earlier than your day is finished.
However Techland’s request that gamers comprise themselves till Friday has prompted some fascinating responses: Some gamers are urging the studio to easily launch the sport now, however others are asking—fairly, I feel—how reviewers and influencers are anticipated to current Dying Gentle 2 “the way in which it is meant to be performed” if they do not have entry to the day one patch themselves.
Hey guys! Loving the look of the sport however might I ask do the reviewers have the day one patch put in as a result of if not then certainly by your personal definition they don’t seem to be capable of assessment the true expertise? I have been loving how you have been open and sincere although, we’d like extra of that.February 1, 2022
I’ve reached out to Techland for readability on that time and can replace if I obtain a reply. Within the meantime, February 4 stays the official launch date for Dying Gentle 2, and our personal assessment of the sport is coming quickly.
