Dying Light 2 is the latest game hit with a delay

Dying Light 2 is the latest game hit with a delay

In what is starting to feel like the new trend in gaming for 2020, developer Techland has announced that is pushing back the release of Dying Light 2.

While originally slated to release during the second quarter of this year, CEO Paweł Marchewka took to Twitter to break the news to players. Marchewka stated "We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately, we need more development time to fulfill our vision. We will have more details to share in the coming months, and will get back to you as soon as we have more information. We apologize for this unwelcome news. Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, our fans"

Unfortunately, no further information was offered as to when we can now expect the game to release. Dying Light 2's delay follows that of several other recent high-profile delays including Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII.

I can't help but wonder if all of these delays have something to do with the impending release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X...

Marvel’s Iron Man VR release pushed back to May

This year started with several high-profile delays with the likes of The Last Of Us: Part II, Final Fantasy VII and Cyberpunk 2077 all being pushed back to later release dates. It seems the delays are not over yet as another game originally slated to release next month has slipped to a few months later.

The upcoming PlayStation 4 VR title, Marvel's Iron Man VR has moved from it's initial release date in February to May 15.

Development studio Camouflaj stated "In order to deliver on our vision and meet the high expectations of our amazing community, we’ve made the difficult decision to move Marvel’s Iron Man VR to a May 15, 2020 release. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding. You’ll be hearing from us again soon!"

Cyberpunk 2077 release pushed back

Cyberpunk 2077 release pushed back

CD Projekt Red as today announced that the eagerly awaited release of Cyberpunk 2077 has been has been pushed from April to September 17.

The studio posted about the delay on it's Twitter account, stating "We are currently at a stage where the game is complete and playable, but there's still work to be done. Night City is massive - full of stories, content, and places to visit, but due to the sheer scale and complexity of it all, we need more time to finish playtesting, fixing and polishing."

It's unfortunate to see one of the year's biggest titles delayed, but I'll take a delay over an unpolished game any day. The studio has soaring player expectations to live up to with the upcoming first-person RPG, so here's hoping this is the last delay we see for what will surely be a phenomenal last hurrah for the current-gen.

BioShock: The Collection rated for Nintendo Switch

BioShock: The Collection rated for Nintendo Switch

A new filing from the Taiwanese ratings board indicates that a BioShock collection could be on its way to the Nintendo Switch.

First spotted by Loot Pots, the Switch ratings filed are for BioShock Remastered, BioShock 2 Remastered, and BioShock Infinite: The Complete Edition, as well as a collection comprised of all three titles.

There's been no official announcement by 2K Games, but given the publisher just opened a new studio and tasked it with developing the next in the franchise... a Switch port is a pretty safe bet.

The available game modes are Retrieval, which will see one team tasked with delivering a payload to the enemies base, while the opposing team will have to try and stop them. The second mode in the Beta is Control. In this mode both teams must battle to take over the battlefield by capturing certain points on the map.

While the Beta will focus on Multiplayer, the game is set to include a single-player story on launch, which sees humanity ravaged by a deadly virus that forces them to transfer their consciousness into robot avatars.

Doom Eternal's latest trailer is full of demonic carnage

Doom Eternal's latest trailer is full of demonic carnage

The latest trailer for Doom Eternal is packed full of guns, demons, and metal music – but also shows off some new gameplay mechanics.

While we've previously seen shiny new additions like the Doom Slayer's grappling ability and a wicked sword, it looks like we'll be able to rain down airstrikes and set up blast shields as well.

2016's Doom was a breath of fresh air in the franchise, bringing back the frenetic pace and over-the-top gore that left many anticipating its follow up.
