Rumors about Dying light 2 develops Techland, which is potentially the goal of an upcoming acquisition, it has been greatly exaggerated. According to the studio’s social manager, Techland is still an independent company and has not been acquired by any other publisher at the moment.
Traction with these rumors started yesterday when the host of a popular Xbox podcast shared that they had heard that Microsoft was potentially looking to pick up Techalnd and make the developer part of Xbox Game Studios stable. This led to a response from Techland’s aforementioned community leader after the rumors began to make it their direct message on Twitter. “It was the same rumor that swam around the internet a year ago, and the situation did not change,”
I get a lot of dm about Dying Light procurement, so I answer here:
It was the same rumor that swam around the internet a year ago, and the situation did not change – Techland is an independent studio, and it was not acquired by another publisher (:

The news that Techland is potentially being acquired comes at a time when procurement rumors have been circulating for several months. Just a few weeks ago, a major new report came out saying that several publishers such as Xbox, PlayStation, Electronic Arts and Amazon have all been looking at snapping up various independent studios recently. Considering how Techland is a prominent indie company, it makes sense that they became one of the companies in the reputation factory.
At present, we do not know for sure about Techland that it is difficult to work with Dying light 2. Although we have not heard anything new about the game officially from Techland for quite some time, the studio has teased that we should start hearing more as the year progresses. In the meantime, a new report has come out which recently claims that the game will be launched faster than we think.
In reality, Dying light 2 has not even got a release window yet, although a launch in 2021 is expected. When it arrives, it will arrive on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
