Dying Light is a zombie-infested open-world title from developer Techland. Techland has now announced that their title has had 4.5 million unique users play their game.
Dying Light has had 4.5 million unique users play the game, up from 3.2 million in March. Sales, however, are slightly less. Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka explained to Eurogamer: “Sales [we] count later – we need time to calculate the sales and returns and so on. Unique users means all the unique users we calculated on the server playing the game for significant number of time. Sales might be slightly less because that includes also secondary sales.”
Techland is also looking at the future of the game and franchise. Marchewka states: “We are thinking about maybe something really of bigger scope.” When asked if he was speaking of an expansion, he smiled and stated: “I don’t know if I can say that. We’ll see, we don’t know that yet.” He also speaks of a sequel: “Obviously, we’re also thinking about how to think about the sequel, what should happen there. So a lot of talk going on right now.”
Marchewka also spoke about another one of Techland’s titles: Hellraid. He has assured fans that the game is not canceled, but is “frozen” at the moment. He states: “Right now we want to concentrate on Dying Light…Once we deliver everything we want [for Dying Light], probably by the – I don’t know – end of the third quarter this year, we will then maybe start to send some new [Hellraid] materials or informations or thinking about what’s the release date, something like that. There is nothing concrete about this timing.”
