A Dying Light sequel may be ‘too ambitious’ for PS4 and Xbox One

Speaking with VideoGamer, Techland’s Tymon Smektala has revealed that a potential Dying Light 2 may be too ambitious for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hardware.

While making it clear that it is "too early" to go into detail about a sequel to the studio’s critically acclaimed zombie adventure, Smektala made it clear that the Dead Island creator has a number of ideas brimming away for a follow-up.

"Of course, we’re not talking about [Dying Light 2] just yet," he commented, "but the reason for that is that it is too early. We have lots of very ambitious ideas so first we need to check if these ideas are even doable with the tech that the current consoles provide.

"We also need to check if our concepts are really as good as we think they are, so we need to prototype things. So there is nothing to talk about, and on the other hand there are lots of things going inside our studio where we test, prototype and experiment with stuff. But I think right now we have a very clear idea of what we can do with the IP and with the universe of Dying Light, so expect good things from us."

Dying Light launched on PS4 and Xbox One earlier this year and has moved over five million copies worldwide to date. The game will receive story-based DLC in the shape of The Following later this year.
