Dying Light 2 was released back on February 4, 2022, and it’s been quite some time since the game enjoyed its very own tie-in DLC. The first big story DLC for Dying Light 2, Bloody Ties was well in development but sadly, the story add-on has been delayed to November 10. It appears Techland is not done with finalizing the DLC as the company needs more time to polish and squash out bugs.
Dying Light 2’s Bloody Ties DLC Gets A Delay
It was earlier today when the studio decided to announce the roughly month-long delay on the social media site, Twitter. Techland also requested its fanbase to join its discord server to leave questions that would be featured later in an upcoming Q&A in regards to the DLC, and presumably, the future of Dying Light 2.
We have taken the decision to postpone the launch of Bloody Ties until November 10th, to allow the team extra time to polish and squash bugs.

The Bloody Ties DLC was unofficially brought to light via a data mine that took place back in July. The add-on went on to receive a brief teaser trailer later in August. It was in Gamescom 2022’s Opening Night Live event that Techland formally revealed Bloody Ties to the world. The company has presented the upcoming DLC to be story-focused but early peeks into the update show gladiatorial arena combat than anything, making some fans suspicious over the implied addition of a separate game mode.
But the lead team designer of Dying Light 2, Tymon Smektala informed gamers that it was important for the company to stress on the fact that this isn’t merely just an arena where players are supposed to fight waves upon waves of enemies.
Instead, the Bloody Ties DLC features a main story with an additional five to six hours of content, not including numerous side quests added into the mix that will pretty much fill out the game’s Villedor map. The DLC is set to take place in Dying Light 2’s Carnage Hall, the arena that was heavily pictured in promotional media, but players will still get to poke around in optional areas of the map too.
Techland has promised to deliver five years of post-launch support for Dying Light 2 akin to what we got to experience with the first instalment of the franchise. The game recently kicked off with Chapter 2: A Huntress and a Hag which is set to properly the game for the immediate future.
Dying Light 2 is currently available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and Series S, and Microsoft Windows.
