Dying Light 2 has sold 5 million units since its February release, which isn’t bad considering the survival horror game has received mostly positive reviews on Steam. Since its premiere in 2015, The First Dying Game has surpassed 20 million copies worldwide. The first game also reached its milestone, selling 20 million units during its lifetime. The game launched in early February, and according to Techland, it should have sold more than 5 million units by March. Dying Light 2 Stay Human is the story-driven open-world RPG sequel to the first Dying Light.
According to Techland, Dying Light 2 sold 5 million copies across all platforms in its first month of release. Dying Light 2 passed a rather impressive sales milestone overnight. Ahead of the release of DL 2 Stay Human, the next patch for the game, Techland announced in a recent press release revealing the sales figure of both the sequel and the original Dying Light. Developer Techland also provided an update on sales of the original 2015 Dying Light, confirming that it has sold over 20 million units so far. Techland CEO Pawl Marchewka says, “The success of the Dying Light franchise is a great example of the unforgettable experiences we create for our players.”
DL 2 launch suffered multiple delays, after the last delay in December 2021 Techland’s zombie thriller was finally released for the public in the first week of February and instantly became a hit among the fans of the franchise, Within days of its launch it was ranking high on the list of most played games on Steam. The reviews were also mostly positive as fans were happy to see the developer’s commitment to releasing a brand new game while still retaining the core aspects that made the original game a fan favorite.
As with Dying Lights, Techland has pledged to continue to support Dying Light 2 in the coming years, for at least five full years, according to the developer himself. It’s not yet clear what they have in mind, although the developer said they are “seriously thinking” about a New Game Plus mode for DL 2, it’s probably too early for that, and it also looks like something is coming and show players both the original Dying Light and his own. Techland has announced that new content for the game will be released soon, including highly requested features and quality of life improvements. It seems like a lot of people can’t get enough of Dying Lights, a unique combination of zombie slaughter and parkour, as Dying Light 2 has sold over 5 million copies just three weeks after the game launched on February 3rd, and that number is growing significantly every month.
