Developer Techland did not explicitly link delays with the significant number of other updates and patches that they released in Dying Light 2, but they did mention a few of those additions, including their new game Plus mode. In a new statement released today (12th May), Techland shared the reasons behind their decision to postpone their anticipated DLC, set for a release in June, saying that feedback has always been their first priority. The DLC is one of two planned paid story DLCs, the second not targeted at a particular date beyond Techland’s promised five years of post-launch support for the game. There is no specific date set for September’s Story DLC, so fans will need to keep an eye on the ground for further details.
