Dying Light developer Techland, Has released which platforms they are releasing Dying Light on and which ones they are dropping.
They announced in a public email, that they are dropping the last-gen versions of the game (PS3 & Xbox 360) because they just wouldn’t be able to run the game, and they don’t want to release a game which is sub par to the next-gen counterpart.
Quote from Techland leading up to the announcement:
Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.
Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.
Techland also took a shot at Nintendo with this quote “To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available.,”
Dying Light is going to be released in the US on January 27, 2015.
