Dying Light developer Techland revealed its plans for the next game in the series, and the fact that they might be a bit too ambitious for what the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 can handle. Producer Tymon Smektala has revealed to VideoGamer that the studio needs to find out if the ideas they have for Dying Light 2 “are even doable with the tech that the current consoles provide.”
“Of course, we’re not talking about [Dying Light 2] just yet,” he said, “but the reason for that is that it is too early. We have lots of very ambitious ideas so first we need to check if these ideas are even doable with the tech that the current consoles provide.
“We also need to check if our concepts are really as good as we think they are, so we need to prototype things. So there is nothing to talk about, and on the other hand there are lots of things going inside our studio where we test, prototype and experiment with stuff. But I think right now we have a very clear idea of what we can do with the IP and with the universe of Dying Light, so expect good things from us.”
Considering the Dying Light was sold in more than 5 million units, across all three important platforms (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC), it’s a sure bet that Dying Light 2 will be arriving rather sooner than later. Will the PC version be superior the the console one because of hardware limitations? Hopefully not.
