Not many games have been confirmed as being in development for the PlayStation 5, at least not exclusively. But Techland has confirmed that Dying Light 2 is eyeing up a release on to Sony’s next flagship console. Although, luckily, that is not at the expense of the PlayStation 4.
That’s because the studio said it is actually in development for cross-generation support because their team are adamant to keep up with the Joneses. In an interview with Wccftech, the Chief Technical Officer, Pawel Rohleder, said:
“Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys!
To be more specific — yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title”.
And just in case you needed proof that they are on the look out for the latest trends, Techland are also researching new graphical technologies that may prove groundbreaking – perhaps not in Dying Light 2, but possibly the third installment… Hint, hint!
As Rohleder explained:
“At Techland, we have always been keen on new technologies, especially when it comes to photo-realism and graphical fidelity.
“Ray tracing has been the holy grail of real-time computer graphics for years, so of course we are looking into it. Regarding DLSS, we are a bit more skeptical, but we are conducting research in that area as well.”
So, it sounds like we’re in for a great sequel. And, hopefully, sequel-sequel. Supposing the franchise survives that long, that is.
Are you ready to make it through Dying Light 2? Or do you have to sleep with the lights on as it is? Illuminate us, not with your flashlight but opinion.
