Dying Light 2 is the first video game to be officially announced for next generation hardware.
While the next-gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett are revealed in both name and specs, only Microsoft’s Halo Infinite has been announced for a next-gen system. While Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7 is being developed with next generation systems in mind, the Square Enix published Dying Light 2 is the first third-party game announced for the upcoming hardware.
Speaking to WCCFTech, developer Techland revealed that the game will have a cross generational release.
“Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys!” Techland said. “To be more specific — yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title.”
Developer Techland is no stranger to cross-gen development. The original Dying Light title was originally planned to release on Xbox 360 alongside Xbox One, PS4 and PC. However, due to the former’s low power, the port had to be cancelled.
