Dying Light 2 is an upcoming survival horror game with action elements, where the player must use their parkour skills to escape from hordes of zombies. The game is set in a huge city that is ruled by different factions that the players can choose to ally with. It's slated to be released in 2020, but enhanced versions of the game seem to be in the cards for the next generation of consoles.
It seems that Dying Light 2 might be released for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett in the future, as comments made with the developers from Techland during an interview with Wccftech confirm that Dying Light 2 is being developed as a cross-generational title.
"Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys! To be more specific — yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title."
The Xbox Scarlett is due to be released during the 2020 holiday season, and the PlayStation 5 likely won't be far behind it. The fact that the next generation of systems is so close has led a lot of people to believe that many upcoming games are being developed with the future in mind and will see a cross-generational release. A lot of developers won't confirm or deny this, as they likely don't want to affect the sales of the initial shipment of games by announcing that an enhanced version is coming to a new console further down the line.
The current generation of consoles has seen numerous ports of older titles: games on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have been revamped for modern systems and Nintendo has ported Wii U games to the Switch by removing their GamePad functionality. It's not surprising that developers are already preparing for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett. We'll likely be seeing the usual cross-console double releases that accompany a transition from one generation to the next. Dying Light 2 is just going to one of many getting a cross-generation release in 2020.
Dying Light 2 is due to be released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2020.
