[Update #2]: My review for Dying Light 2 is now up, and I'm happy to say that it's a somewhat misguided yet still highly entertaining bandit-kicking simulator!

[Update]: Techland has now revealed their plans for Dying Light 2's post-launch updates and DLC.

Given that Dying Light 2 is set to release this February 4th, it shouldn't come as too much of a shock to hear that Techland has now started discussing their plans for post-launch support. What might come as quite a surprise, however, is that they are committing to at least five years of updates and DLCs!

The details are obviously few and far between as most of this content isn't even in the planning phase yet, but you can expect to see things like new events, locations and in-game items. It's also likely there will be new story DLC thrown into the mix, and potentially even an expansion given how things went with the original Dying Light.

For the vast majority of studios I would simply attribute statements like these to overenthusiastic PR people and not pay them much heed. However, with Techland I'm almost completely certain that they are actually serious about this.

The reason I say this is because Dying Light got a brand new piece of DLC many years after launch, and that same DLC just received a new batch of content last month! And if that wasn't enough, there is a next-gen Dying Light update currently in the works - an update that might even release after Dying Light 2. So when Techland says they're planning to support Dying Light 2 for another five years, I'm inclined to believe them!

Whatever the future might bring, I'll make sure to let you know once Techland releases a proper roadmap. Until then, you can read a little bit more about Dying Light 2 over at the official website.
