Dying Light Canceled for PS3, Xbox 360

Dying Light Canceled

PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Dying Light have been canceled in order to focus on bringing the game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, developer Techland announced in a post on the official Dying Light Facebook page.

The developer, who earlier this year told us the game is more open-world parkour than zombie thriller, said the company wanted to create an experience that was truly next-gen, and therefore, older consoles could not stay true to its vision.

“Much of this ‘next-gen feel’ is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once,” Techland states in the post. “Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits.”

Dying Light is an open-world parkour game set during a zombie apocalypse. It is still on track to release in January for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Quick Take

It seems as if Dying Light became too advanced for PS3 and Xbox 360 over the course of its development, and that’s OK. Rather than putting out a watered down version of the game so it could be more widely available, Techland decided to release the best possible version of Dying Light. It’s a bummer for gamers who haven’t upgraded yet, but provides extra incentive to go new-gen.
