It’s the week of delays in the video game industry. Earlier this week, Dying Light 2: Stay Human developer Techland announced that it is delaying the open-world game’s first piece of story DLC to September. This came shortly after Bethesda announced a launch delay for both Starfield and Redfall. While Dying Light 2’s delay is much shorter and easy to take, fans of the game are still disappointed they have to wait to consume more content in the city of Villedor. However, a delay usually means that the developers simply need more time to polish and perfect whatever they’re going to release.

Dying Light 2 was released back in early February and since then, has dropped a few updates and small bits of content. One of the last updates the game received saw general improvements to multiplayer along with a plethora of bug fixes. The updates have also added in features like New Game Plus. It seems the developers at Techland want to ensure the base game continues to receive updates while they work on the first story DLC.

Techland cited focusing on player feedback as their top priority, thus pushing the launch of the DLC. They said in a statement that “we need a bit more time to develop the first story DLC, which is now planned to be released in September. We apologize for the delay, but we firmly believe that our community, fans, and gamers deserve to receive some truly unforgettable experiences.”

It’s unclear what exactly will be included in the story DLC. However, what we do know is that Techland will deliver some key content prior to the DLC’s release. In June, Dying Light 2 will be updated with a Photo Mode along with the first game Chapter titled “In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner.” This will introduce smaller pieces of content along with other in-game events. The post-launch roadmap for the game is viewable below.

There’s no exact release date for the story DLC in September, so fans will have to keep their ears to the ground for more information.
