What is the release date of Dying Light 2?
Dying Light 2 is slated for release on February 4 on Playstation, XBox, and PC, but that’s bad news if you’re a Nintendo Switch gamer.
Developer Techland recently announced that release on the Nintendo gaming platform has been “moved to a later date.”
This means that fans may have to wait up to six months, i.e. August 2022, to play the game on the home console.
Technland didn’t provide many details about the delay, but they said the decision was made so that Switch gamers can get “the level gaming experience they deserve.”
The studio said, “In order to provide fans with the level of gaming experience that they deserve and that Techland wants to deliver, Dying Light 2 Stay Human The release date of (Cloud Version) on Nintendo Switch will be moved.

Dying Light 2 trailer:
If you were hit by the unlucky output delay, don’t worry. There are plenty in the Dying Light 2 trailer to get you excited.
The trailer begins with our protagonist, Aiden Caldwell (voiceover by Jonah Scott), as he escapes into The City to try and find his sister Mia. We soon find out that a man named Waltz previously separated the siblings, and now Aiden wants to know why.
As Aiden searches for his beloved brother, we get a look at the many locations that cross the city and a glimpse of the game’s supposed co-op as he roams the ground.
We are then immersed in the world at night after ‘the infected’ are mentioned, before glimpsing the zombies that players clash with. You’ll then be able to see various weapons, including a UV light, an axe, and the ability to smash mobs from the rooftops of buildings.
Players may also find themselves fighting humans at times, as there appear to be distinct groups resisting each other.
The trailer then ends with Aiden being annihilated by a powerful man, whose character we have yet to establish.
