Techland has revealed that a Dying Light next-gen patch is in development. Hopefully, that means that you'll be able to play Dying Light 1 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S sooner rather than later.

We're roughly four months away from the launch of Dying Light 2, a game that has frustrated some players due to the lack of communication from Techland. Techland made an effort to better communicate with its fans since then, and that's not the only good move it's recently made -- Techland has recently announced that a Dying Light next-gen patch is in development.

The Dying Light Next-Gen Patch Highlights Techland's Commitment to Older Games

The Dying Light next-gen patch will certainly be a welcome surprise to fans of the first game. After all, I'm sure that the lucky few who managed to snag a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S would want to make the most of their shiny new hardware.

"We're currently working on a next-gen patch for Dying Light 1 - more details coming in the future[,]" read a tweet from the franchise's official account (via PlayStation Lifestyle).


Techland bringing a nearly seven-year-old game to next-gen shows just how committed it is to ensuring that its games have a long shelf life. This isn't the only cool thing it did for Dying Light, either: a patch with a bunch of brand-new content for Dying Light: Hellraid launched yesterday and added a new weapon, new potions, and new challenges for players to overcome.

The one key thing we don't yet know is when this patch will actually launch. For now, there's not much to do other than look forward to the Dying Light next-gen patch and wait for the sequel to finally arrive in February 2022. If you haven't yet played the original game, you can buy Dying Light Platinum Edition for PC via Steam for $24.99, a 50% discount off of its normal price that lasts until October 28, 2021.

Are you looking forward to the Dying Light next-gen patch? Do you think we'll get to play the original game on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S before Dying Light 2 launches? Let us know in the comments below!
