A new European retail release date of Dying Light has been revealed. Gamestop Italy has listed the release date for the Horror shooter title as February 20th. Hopefully, this release date is the same for the rest of Europe and not just a placeholder.
Bear in mind, that this is the release date for the physical version of the game and the digital copies release date is still the same. So digital purchasers will be able to download the game by the end of January (on the 28th) while retail purchasers will have to wait another few weeks.
The game’s launch was delayed in Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and the Middle East, while the North American copies will be arriving as originally scheduled, on February 28th. The announcement for the delay of the games physical copies came this week. Developers Techland are yet to give a reason for the delay, but they did release a statement explaining that they are not responsible for the games distribution.
“The publishing and distribution of the game is not handled by us. Once we at Techland know more about how the release of the game will be coordinated, we will immediately inform everyone,” a company spokesperson has told Eurogamer.
It surely isn’t a development reason for the game’s delay, as Techland revealed that the game had gone gold and the digital releases are still on time. So it is possible that there was a disc shortage for the game.
The digital version of Dying Light will be out by January 28th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game were cancelled in 2014.
