2021's lineup of games just got a whole lot slimmer.

You can add Techland's highly anticipated sequel to its 2015 open-world zombie title to the said list. 

Techland has confirmed that Dying Light 2: Stay Human will release in February 2022. 

Techland initially planned to release Dying Light 2 in December 2021. 

This long awaited announcement naturally got plenty of fans excited.

It also didn't hurt that Techland showed off a brand new trailer at Gamescom 2021. 

However, it appears that fans will just have to suffer for a little longer.

Techland's CEO released a statement on Twitter explaining the delay.

Basically, the gist of what Pawel Marchewka said is that Techland needs more time to work on Dying Light 2. 

If it's any consolation, Marchewka did promise fans that the studio is going to release a preview in October.

It's been a long road for Dying Light 2 to get here.

Techland first announced Dying Light 2 at E3 2018 and intended to launch the game in spring 2020.

Since then, Techland has gone radio silent until earlier this year when it started posting updates about the game.

In addition to this, Techland has done its best to do fans right by releasing more free content for Dying Light,

Techland has also since ported Dying Light to the Nintendo Switch. 

With that said, it'll be interesting to see how well Dying Light 2 does against a stacked February lineup.

PlayStation-exclusive martial arts game, Sifu, will release in February 2022.

Guerilla Games delayed Horizon Forbidden West to February 2022 as well. 

Evil Dead: The Game was also postponed to February 2022 to give the devs more time to work on it. 

There's also the Saints Row reboot that's set to launch on February 2022. 

Only time will tell if delaying Dying Light 2 was worth it for Techland.
