Dead Island series creator Techland struck gold, again, with their second open-world zombie survival game, Dying Light. It should come as no surprise to hear they may already be waist-deep in the production of a sequel to one of the most successful games, horror or otherwise, of 2015. Still though, it’s nice to think about.

Techland has two games in development, and one of them may be Dying Light 2.

The first isn’t a sequel, nor does it have anything to do with their promising dark fantasy brawler Hellraid, which has been simmering on the back burner since last June.

It’s something new, though it will share some similarities to the studio’s other titles. We still don’t know much, aside from what we’ve just gleaned from Eurogamer and their chat with Techland CEO Paweł Marchewka, who described it as an “open-world fantasy game with RPG elements” that will have a slightly larger scope compared to Dying Light. It will also have the expected blend of single-player and co-op.

Techland’s Warsaw team is handling the fantasy RPG, while in Wrocław, the team that made Dying Light — a game that currently has an 8 million-strong user base — is working on a follow-up to one of their existing IPs.

Dying Light 2 is a fairly safe bet, but I doubt it’ll be ready for E3 next month.
