Dying Light has been delayed into February 2015, Techland has announced.

The developer said the delay will allow the team to remain “committed to innovation” and provide players with “freedom of movement unprecedented in open world games.”

“After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready,” the firm said in a statement.

“We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing too early. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.”

Starting next month at E3 2014, Techland will provide more details on the game’s features and other aspects.

The first-Person, open-world survival game is in development for PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    I like that a lot of companies are speaking on delaying their games to allow more time for quality. We’ve been way too familiar with a constant process of games rushed out just to get them in stores sooner.

    @salarta I wonder if the fact that the public is getting wise to “crunch” is having anything to do with it too. It’s great to get the extra quality, but it’s far better to delay the game to get it than abuse staff.
