Rumors of Dying Light 2 Developer Techland, potentially the target of an upcoming acquisition, has been grossly over the top, it seems. According to the studio’s community manager, Techland remains an independent company and has not been acquired by any other publisher at this time.
The traction with these rumors began yesterday when the host of a popular Xbox podcast shared They had heard that Microsoft was potentially considering acquiring Techalnd and making the developer part of its Xbox Game Studios stable. This prompted a response from Techland’s aforementioned community manager after mentions of the rumor started showing up in his direct messages on Twitter. “There was the same rumor circulating the Internet a year ago and the situation did not change,” said Uncy, the study’s community manager. “Techland is an independent studio and was not acquired by another publisher.”
I’m getting a lot of dm’s about the Dying Light acquisition so I’ll answer here:

The news of the possible Techland acquisition comes at a time when acquisition rumors have been circulating for months. Just a few weeks ago, a major new report emerged saying that various publishers such as Xbox, PlayStation, Electronic Arts, and Amazon have been looking to seize several independent studios recently. Considering Techland is a prominent independent company, it makes sense that they have become one of the rumored companies.
By now, all we know for sure about Techland is that it’s hard at work Dying Light 2. While we haven’t heard anything new about the game officially from Techland in quite some time, the studio has teased that we should start hearing more as the year progresses. Meanwhile, a new report has emerged stating that the game will launch sooner than we think.
Actually, Dying Light 2 It has not been given a release window yet, although a release is expected in 2021. Whenever it does arrive, it will hit PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
