Pawel Selinger, the writer of the long-awaited Dying Light 2, announced a few days ago his departure from the Techland studio, where he worked for over 20 years. To calm the waters a bit, the studio came out to reassure fans by promising news about the title soon.
The writer of Dying Light 2 left Techland after 20 years
It’s no mystery, Dying Light 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2021. The title had been announced at E3 2018, and its original release was scheduled for March to June 2020. However, the game was delayed, and since then, there was no news about the advances in its development.
The alarm was raised these days, when Pawel Selinger, one of the writers responsible for Dying Light 2, announced his departure from the studio after more than 22 years of service. In an attempt to convey peace of mind to fans, Techland contacted PCGamer to provide more transparency about what happened.
“Pawel Selinger decided at the end of 2020 to end his cooperation with Techland and continue his career elsewhere. Pawel spent most of his professional life at Techland and he, among others, takes credit for the success of the Call of Juarez series. He left a large part of himself in Dying Light 2, working on the project from the beginning. His duties, i.e. the narrative department, were taken over by Piotr Szymanek in October 2020,” said Techland.
Finally, Techland promised to bring more news from Dying Light 2 soon, perhaps another trailer with a new release date. However, the title is expected to be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
