Techland Boasts New Sales Figures for Dying Light 1 and 2
Techland shared updated sales figures for both parts of Dying Light. The games have attracted millions of newcomers.
Today we learned how many players were attracted to Dying Light and Dying Light 2: Stay Human. Techland boasted [in Polish] that 30 million copies of both games have been sold. According to the company's founder, Pawel Marchewka:
"It's hard to find a better motivation for entertainment developers. This is fuel for the entire Techland team to continue supporting Dying Light, but also to work intensively on the development of our new open-world IP set in a fantasy universe."
It has been known for a long time that the mysterious game set in an original fantasy universe mentioned by Marchewka is being developed. Unfortunately, no new information has been shared about this alleged heir to the abandoned Hellraid. We do know that the Warsaw branch of Techland is responsible for the project.
Dying Light 2 launched on February 4, 2022, and proved to be quite a success. The game, whose production costs amounted to $100 million, broke even as early as the first month after the debut - 5 million copies were sold at that point. Techland informed at the same time, that so far the result of the first Dying Light, from 2015, amounted to 20 million copies sold.
In addition, the studio admitted that it does not intend to rest on its laurels and will continue to support Dying Light 2. Even before the game's release, it was reported that it wanted to develop the game for five years, so we can count on more new content in the near future. Perhaps we will hear about it during the anniversary broadcast, which will take place today at 10 am PT.
