Dying Light launching earlier than expected

The launch of open-world zombie survival game Dying Light has been pushed ever so slightly forward to Jan. 27, 2015, developer Techland confirmed in a post to its official Twitter account.

Earlier this year, the company announced the game's launch would come a few months later than originally planned, while aiming for February 2015 launch window.

"When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation," the developer said at the time. "We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open world games. After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready."

According to the developer, the later 2015 release would also eliminate compromises and trade-offs when it arrives on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC.

The company has since released an image to its Twitter account which shows the game's new release date scrawled in paint on the ground, in-game.
