Dying Light 2 is among the first games to be officially announced for both the current and next generation of consoles.
It’s usually a good bet that games releasing at the tail end of a console generation are also going to arrive on the next generation. This is fairly standard, but it’s rare that developers will openly talk about these plans until new consoles are in people’s homes.
Not Techland, though, who is happy to confirm that Dying Light 2 was envisioned from the beginning as a cross-generation game. “Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys!” chief technology officer Pawel Rohleder told WCCFTech.
“To be more specific – yes, the plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generation title.”
It’s obviously too early to talk specifics. In fact, the developer won’t even address what kind of upgrades this generation’s more powerful consoles PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will feature, though Rohleder did confirm a 1080p target.
“For Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, we want to run at full HD (1920×1080). It’s too early to specify exclusive features for more powerful consoles, but our top priority is a smooth gameplay experience (parkour, combat, etc.),” he told the site.
Dying Light 2 continues to look impressive, having been recently shown at E3. The game is due out in the spring for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
