Sprawling Chinese tech outfit Tencent is set to become majority shareholder in Polish development studio Techland. The Dying Light 2 Stay Human developer insists it will still retain full ownership and “maintain creative freedom” over its IPs, however.
“We dream of turning Dying Light into the ultimate zombie game experience for players worldwide, providing you with multiple astonishing adventures and pushing the boundaries of solo and online modes to a totally new level,” said studio founder and CEO Pawel Marchewka (via VGC).
“Our open world action-RPG in a fantasy setting is already shaping up to become something truly special, and the goal here is to make sure it will live up to the expectations for our first new IP in almost a decade," he added.
Marchewka explained that with “ like-minded friends and strong partners, who share the same vision, passion,” Techland will “continue to operate the way we believe is right,” adding that he will "continue serving as the studio’s CEO.”
“Teaming up with Tencent will allow us to move full speed ahead with the execution of the vision for our games," Marchewka's statement goes on. “We have chosen an ally who has already partnered with some of the world’s finest video game companies and helped them reach new heights while respecting their ways of doing things.”
Dying Light 2 Stay Human launched for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC back in February 2022, and is due to receive a The Walking Dead crossover at some point.
