2020 was a pretty quiet year for Techland’s Dying Light 2, but there is an indication that 2021 will not follow that trend. The game was delayed in January 2020, without a new release window.
Now, narrative designer Paweł Selinger announced leaving the company, saying that he has “left a large piece of himself” in Dying Light 2.
Selinger announced his departure on LinkedIn, and he is leaving after 22 years. “I would like to express my gratitude to the company that has allowed me to develop and fulfill myself for half of my life. Techland, I will always be rooting for you, as well as the great people I have met thanks to you. I wish you that Dying light 2 and subsequent projects will become world hits.”
After the announcement, Techland sent a statement to a few enquiring journalists, confirming Selinger’s departure and saying that there is “exciting news” on the way.
“Paweł Selinger, who has been the Narration Designer for the last two years, decided at the end of 2020 to end his cooperation with Techland and to pursue his further career elsewhere. Paweł spent most of his professional life at Techland and he, among others, takes credit for the success of the series Call of Juarez. He left a large piece of himself with Dying Light 2, as he worked on the project from the very beginning. His duties, i.e. the narrative department, were taken over by Piotr Szymanek in October 2020.
“We will be sharing exciting news about Dying Light 2 soon!”
