Techland has announced that the first story DLC for Dying Light 2 Stay Human has been delayed until September, despite the studio's original post-launch content roadmap scheduling the expansion for May.

In a revised roadmap, the developer also chalks up a new game Chapter titled ‘In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner’ for June, with a second additional Chapter set to arrive later in the year. Techland attributes the story DLC delay to its work on adding much requested features to Dying Light 2, like New Game+, an FOV slider, and improvements to co-op play.

“Over the last few months, we have focused on adding some of your most requested features, such as New Game + mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements,” Techland writes in a statement. “On top of that, in June, we will introduce the first game Chapter entitled ‘In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,’ filled with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode.”

Techland apologised for the delay, adding that its “community, fans, and gamers deserve to receive some truly unforgettable experiences.” The statement from the studio concludes: “We want the first major story DLC to meet your expectations by giving it the absolute highest level of polish.”

You can take a look at the revised Dying Light 2 Stay Human post-launch roadmap below, which forms part of five years of planned support for the game. Dying Light 2's first story DLC will now be arriving in September 2022.

  • The reason DLC drops near launch is simply because people aren't that interested in your game a year anymore. Planning five years of support just means people will buy thecomplete experience six years later.
  • Wait. According to the roadmap the DLC is now split into parts? So it's not 2 complete story DLC but 2 story DLC split across multiple drops? Major oof there....
