Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka releases a letter to fans, thanking them for supporting Dying Light, while also promising new content for the game later this year.
Just a few days ago, Techland gave gamers the opportunity to return to the zombie-ridden world of Dying Light with The Following, an expansion that added significant content to the year-old game. For those that have enjoyed their return to Harran, we have good news to share, as Techland has announced plans to continue supporting Dying Light throughout the rest of 2016.
This is according to Techland’s CEO Paweł Marchewka, who explained as much in a letter to fans. Marchewka thanked the Dying Light community for their support, as well as the press for giving Dying Light: The Following high review scores. He points to the positive reception to The Following as the reason why the company has decided to continue supporting the game for another year.
Marchewka confirmed that more content for Dying Light is already being developed, but stopped short of specifics. It’s possible that Dying Light could have another large paid expansion in store, or alternatively, smaller free content updates. It seems that Techland itself is not quite sure where Dying Light will be taken next, and so Marchewka has encouraged fans to provide their feedback to the development team through the company’s social media channels.
It’s refreshing to see a company reach out to the gaming community in this manner, and even encourage fans to send them feedback and ideas. Techland’s CEO says that he believes in an “active collaboration” between the design team and the players, and when one sees how much Dying Light has improved since its initial launch, it’s clear that this has been the company’s philosophy since from the start.
The Following expansion for the game by itself adds a bevy of new content to the experience that significantly enhances Dying Light. The dune buggy, for example, offers gamers much quicker transportation than they’re used to, yet somehow doesn’t rob the game of its sense of urgency. Fans have also responded well to other new content and features that have been added to Dying Light with The Following expansion, such as the large Harran countryside, the new bounty system, the Nightmare difficulty mode, and more.
Let’s hope that Techland is able to keep up the same level of quality in the future Dying Light content that it achieved with The Following. If the company is able to produce a continuous stream of engaging material, then Techland should have no problem keeping gamers immersed in Dying Light throughout the rest of 2016.
Dying Light and its expansion, The Following, are currently available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One .
