Dying Light 2 (opens in new tab) was announced during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference (opens in new tab), and a year later was given a release date of spring 2020. But at the start of that year it was delayed, and since then it's lost a lead writer (opens in new tab) and a report with multiple sources called its development "total chaos" (opens in new tab). Now, Techland are gearing up for an announcement, tweeting a short video of a Volatile (one of Dying Light's nocturnal infected) with the words, "We've got a few words to share with you about the Dying Light 2 development process. Be sure to be with us next Wednesday."

One of the replies to that tweet expressed worry, saying "this game feels like dev hell". The official reply disagreed with that assessment, saying, "DL2 keeps moving forward, we announced the game too early but it's far from being in a dev hell" (opens in new tab). They also confirmed that Dying Light 2 is not being canceled (opens in new tab), and won't be an Early Access release (opens in new tab).
If you can't wait until March 17 to hear more about Dying Light 2, you can apparently join its Discord server (opens in new tab) to get earlier access to the new information.
