Coming out later this month, developer Techland’s new open-world zombie title Dying Light sets to innovate the zombie apocalypse genre by injecting a bit of parkour into the mix, and although the game is still on track for release in the US, the game’s physical release will see a delay in other territories.
In a post on the official Dying Light Facebook page, Techland’s statement mentions that the physical release of the title will see a delay from its originally-planned January 27th, 2015 release in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Australia, with the game’s digital release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC to remain unaffected.
Specifically, Techland’s post mentions that the “longer lead time” of producing physical copies as opposed to a digital release is leading to some delay in those territories, with the developer mentioned that more “information on the availability of physical copies” will be made announced as soon as they are confirmed.
Dying Light will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 27th, 2015 – physical copies in the US will remain on track for release, while physical copies in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Australia will see a slight delay. The game’s digital release on all platforms worldwide will be unaffected.
