Although we have not known about Dying Light 2 for some time, it seems that Techland is already preparing for its launch. What we are referring to is that the game has already found a distributor that is responsible for bringing its RPG of zombies to American territory.
Through a statement, Square Enix announced that it had reached an agreement with Techland Publishing to be the company that takes Dying Light 2 to stores in the Americas. It is worth mentioning that the company did not specify who will dispatch Dying Light 2 in other regions. Therefore, we do not know if its distributor for Europe will be Square Enix, Techland Publishing or another company.
In the statement, John Heinecke, marketing director of Square Enix, confirmed that there will be more news about Dying Light 2 in E3 2019. Although he did not specify it, it is very likely that this information will be shared at its E3 2019 conference, which will be held on Monday, June 10, at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (2 AM BST on June 11).
Ed Lin, marketing manager at Techland, was very excited to partner with Square Enix to bring his game to the American gaming community: “This partnership represents an incredible opportunity for both companies to bring Modern Dark Ages to audiences across Americas. Our partnership kicks off this year at E3 and we are looking forward to a great campaign that showcases the fan favorite Dying Light DNA in the expansive and savage world of the infected.”
We remind you that the first title of Dying Light was not distributed by Square Enix, but by Warner Bros. Games. The reasons why this company did not take over this sequel are unknown.
In recent news, Tymon Smektala, the chief designer at Techland, said that it is impossible to tell the duration of the game, which could be 15 or 50 hours long.
Dying Light 2 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. And you, what do you think about this alliance? Did you ever imagine that the game was part of the Square Enix catalog? Tell us in the comments below.
