Techland's parkour zombie game Dying Light has been delayed to February 2015, pushing it out of its 2014 release window. According to the announcement, the studio made the decision to delay in order to fully realize its "Natural Movement" system, which has been pitched as its standout feature.
"We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open-world games," read the statement. "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. We believe the Natural Movement element of our game will change what you expect from the genre, and we don’t want to sacrifice any of its potential by releasing too early."
