Weep with me, but let us look to the future with hope - as Techland assures us the delay is meant to fully realize their vision for a title that will be the exotic love child of Dead Island and Mirror's Edge.
"When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation. We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open world games. After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready.
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."
I'll wait for you, Dying Light. I'll wait forever.
[update] Oh, also - The Elder Scrolls Online's console version has been delayed as well - Bethesda estimates it'll drop about six months from June 2014.
Whatever. Just announce Fallout 4 already, Bethesda. Next-gen only, please. [/update]
