    Don't be so sure. There was conflict between the dev team and Avellone prior. It didn't sound like they were happy with his work even before he got cancelled.
    Also stuff gets scrapped in game dev all the time.

    The fact Techland are so far removed from the raging culture war/ Maoist revolution geographically, indeed being part of a post-Communism country to boot, makes their kowtowing to mob justice that much worse. An extra special fuck you to whoever was responsible.

    DL is a run & gun shooter, which just happens to implement vertical movement in a somewhat enjoyable, Mirror's Edge yet freeform manner around a nice big, even if repetitive, urban environment, they managed to implement using money swindled out of EU on behalf of some spatial presentation project or the like. Thing is, the plot, while not typically cliched, was still serviceable at best.

    That being said, as a story/combat-fag hybrid, I'd enjoy the zombie stomping even better, if the plot was actually decent, and MCA could potentially make it happen. As for the change of design, DL2 seems like it transitioned the setting from run of the mill "Zombies: Now" to a slightly less boring post-outbreak.

    I read somewhere that they were modifying the contributions from Chris before all of this. It didn't fit their game or something of the sort. While I don't remember the source, this was supposed to have been said by a developer.

    With this being released I think Dying Light 2 might be in deep trouble.

    For you that don't remember Hellraid was supposed to be stand-alone dungeon crawler of sorts... but got cancelled?

    Never played First game but played Dead Island. This dl2 reminds me more Arkham games for some reasons, Just with c&c that can change the enviroment.

    Dying Light 1's main problem was that the story was utter trash. And the itemization was shit, too.

    You basically played the game for the parkour, not for the story.

    with baseless accusation no less. i support speaking out but every spoken statement should be thoroughly investigated before actions are taken. journalism 101. present both side's argument

    Even if those accusations were 100% on mark... so what? They accuse him of being a stud that picks up drunk bitches on gaming conventions. Why should that be grounds for ending cooperation with him?

    sexual harrasment is a real problem, the "investigating" part is part of separating if such acts are even considered a crime or not. "which it shouldn't" but you get real cases once in a while that warrants the police being involved (e.g actual rape/sex harassment cases). i don't think picking up girls at the club is a crime.

    I got to the second big map in the game and got tired of the loot and story and just parkoured everywhere, stomping zombie heads when I could and escaping if they required any use of my items. Was fun for an hour doing that and I never went back.

    I remember Hellraid and thinking it looked like first person Diablo II. Thought it were an in-universe setting though, not this Ready Player One faggotry.

    Yeah, why I'm thinking the studio might be in trouble money-wise. Taking some old beta build and throwing it in as a dlc for an already established game.

    Well I never had hopes for this. With or without Avellone it never looked like Dying Light 1 to me (which I liked). But I really wanted to play Hellraid (as a standalone ofc). Now it looks like we will get neither Hellraid nor a proper DL successor, 2 opportunities down the drain

    Apparently it's not coming out this year.

    All of the above quotes are from 06.05.2020.
