Techland has pushed back its zombie free-running survival game, Dying Light, to February 2015.
The Warner Bros-published title was initially set to release sometime this year, but in a statement released today, the developer has said that the extra time will allow it to perfect the game’s “Natural Movement” mechanic.
“We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing too early. This quality-focused thinking underlines all our development choices and we hope you share our belief that the gameplay must always come first.”
“The new date ensures that we can fully realize our vision of an innovative open-world game. We won’t need to make compromises or trade-offs on any of the five platforms we’re working on. For you, it means an outstanding, original game that makes the wait more than worthwhile.”
Those five platforms, of course, are PC, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One.
