Dying Light 2 On Nintendo Switch Delayed

Switch players will have to wait just a little bit longer to get their hands on Dying Light 2, as Techland has announced the Switch cloud version will not launch alongside the other versions on February 4. Instead, the developer is aiming to release the Switch version “within six months” of the original date, meaning it should be out by early August.

The studio delayed the game to provide Switch players, “with the gaming experience at the level they deserve.” Dying Light 2 is still scheduled for February 4 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Dying Light 2 is the sequel to 2015’s Dying Light, an open world zombie game with a dynamic day-night cycle. No matter what platform you plan to play on, Dying Light 2 is set to be a big experience. In addition to taking 500 hours to complete absolutely every ounce of content the game has to offer, Dying Light 2 will also receive five years of post-launch support. We’ve gone hands-on with Dying Light 2, where we thought it felt like, “the natural next step for the franchise.”

Techland’s sequel has endured numerous delays. The game was originally supposed to launch in Spring 2020, before the studio delayed it indefinitely. Then, the game was slated for December of last year, before getting pushed just a few months back to February.

Dying Light 2 is one of many multiplatform games that Switch players can only access through cloud streaming. Others include Hitman 3, Control, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Kingdom Hearts.
