Dying Light 2 developer Techland has faced another setback as the art director for the game has announced today that he has left the studio.
Pawel Selinger, art director, and writer of Dying Light 2 announced on Linkedin that he is leaving Techland. He was one of the writers on the original Dying Light while he also served as a writer and art director for the sequel.
On his Linkedin profile. Pawel Selinger has listed his position as Art Director at Techland for 12 years, and he switched to writing from February 2019 until December 2020, when he left the studio.
“After over twenty-two years, I decided to end my cooperation with Techland, ” wrote Pawel in a post that was shared on Linkedin. “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.”
Back in June 2020, Techland cut ties with Chris Avellone after sexual harassment allegations against him. He was the lead writer of the project. After that, there was no update on who will manage the project as the lead writer, but judging by the update of Pawel Selinger who started working as a writer in February 2019, it could be a team of writers managing the project.
While we don’t know the status of Dying Light 2 and when it is going to launch, the developers did assure fans that they are planning to share an update on the project soon.
