Dying Light Cancelled For Last Gen


Hotly anticipating Techland’s upcoming zombie game, Dying Light? Better have a PS4 or Xbox One (or a really decent PC) as the last-gen versions have been cancelled.

According to a post on Techland’s official Facebook page, the 360 & PS3 versions of Dying Light were cancelled because the systems just couldn’t handle the game.

"After thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC.Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.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. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on."

Admittedly now I’m a little more intrigued about Dying Light as up to now, most games for both PS4 and Xbox One haven’t been so far ahead other consoles that they couldn’t possibly be done on the older generation (hence all the cross-gen releases this last year). This is hopefully the sign of the performance gap between the two generations starting to show as developers get better acquainted with what the new consoles are capable of and not willing to make the sacrifices necessary just to get the games to run on hardware that’s getting close to a decade old at this point. Dying Light hits PS4, Xbox One and PC in January.
