On May 17, Techland CEO Pawel Marchewka said that while the studio plans to support Dying Light 2 for at least five years, it also has ambitions to introduce a brand new gaming IP.
“We want to create a fully next-gen experience,” he noted (via Gematsu). “A new fantasy epic set in a sprawling open world, fueled by the skills and experience we have gained as a team over the years, infused with new ideas, passion, and creativity.”
Techland didn’t share any more details about the upcoming project, but it now has around 70 open positions across several disciplines.
