The Dying Light franchise has collectively sold more than 30 million copies
Dying Light 2 is about to turn one year old, and to celebrate the upcoming anniversary, developer Techland has confirmed that the zombie game franchise has moved more than 30 million units in total.
As part of the initial anniversary celebrations, Techland also announced there was a “plethora of celebrations and updates for the community,” including a 50 percent discount and hints that the franchise plans to expand into “other media.”
There will be a week-long celebration where players can win goodies by completing community goals in the Bloody Anniversary event and Dropkick weekend where premium bundles can be won. And if you’re watching or participating in Dying Light 2 live streams through February 7th, there’s more “nostalgic loot via Twitch Drops” too.
“The team continues to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to creating memorable experiences for gamers worldwide – we don’t stop there and we will continue to support the game with amazing content for years to come,” said Chief Creative Officer, Adrian Ciszewski.
“These stellar numbers speak for themselves and validate the success of the Dying Light franchise,” added Chief Publishing Officer Oleg Klapovskiy. “We were only able to achieve this thanks to our amazing community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them again for their great support. We have ambitious plans not only to develop and continue to support the game, but also to expand it to other media.”
There are also special goodies for those of you who own both Dying Light 2 and its prequel, including the Crane Bundle, which allows you to “make a comeback as the legendary hero of Harran, Kyle Crane.”
“With these significant updates already planned for Dying Light 2, fans may be wondering what’s next for the game in the coming year,” teases the developer. “Techland has outlined a new roadmap and will continue to flesh out plans for 2023 as part of the 5-year commitment to the game.”
Bloody Ties, the long-awaited first part of the Dying Light 2 story DLC, is now available.
Techland recently released a four-part video detailing the “creative process” behind the Dying Light 2 Stay Human soundtrack.
