In the wake of the global success of the Dying Light franchise and Dying Light 2 Stay Human's strong opening sales figures, independent developer Techland is assembling new strengths and powering up all of the teams within the company—including the team responsible for it unrevealed AAA open world action-RPG in a fantasy setting.
Throughout Dying Light 2 Stay Human's record-setting launch and last year's intense production, Techland continued working on its mysterious upcoming title and now prepares to significantly grow the development team.
“We're very happy with what we have accomplished with the Dying Light franchise so far. Moreover, our journey with Dying Light 2 Stay Human has only just begun as we plan to support this game for at least 5 years, with its scope and size matching, if not exceeding, what we have provided our community with during post-launch support for its predecessor. At the same time, our ambition is to introduce a brand new IP that is vastly different from what we have been doing for the past several years. We want to create a fully next-gen experience. A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity. While we cannot share more details about this project now, we're all truly invested in it and looking forward to showing it to gamers when the time is right." - said Paweł Marchewka, CEO at Techland
