Dying Light goes new-gen only as Techland abandons 360, PS3 versions

Zombie survival game Dying Light is no longer a cross-console generation game. Developer Techland announced today it will no longer release the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, saying those older consoles were compromising the "core vision of Dying Light."

Techland said on its Facebook that it spent the past three years of development "making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience."

"Much of this ’next-gen feel’ is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light," the studio said. "For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. 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 Lightplays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms."

The decision to leave last-gen console behind and release only on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One was made "after thorough internal testing," Techland says. Players will now get "the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on."

Other publishers and developers have made compromises in bringing their games to two console generations. Ubisoft chose to bring one Assassin’s Creed game, Unity, only to to current-generation consoles while releasing a separate game, Rogue, for older platforms. Warner Bros., which is publishing Dying Light, is releasing a version of its Lord of the Rings game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on PS3 and Xbox 360 next month, but without the robust Nemesis system that’s currently available on PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Dying Light was originally announced in May 2013. The free-running, open-world zombie survival game was originally slated to hit this year. Dying Light will now hit PS4, Windows PC and Xbox One in January.
