News: Hellraid put on hold

Techland, the maker of Dying Light, has announced that their upcoming FPP Hellraid release date this year will be delayed. How long? According to Hellraid website blog post, Techland is going back to drawing board to redo the entire project as it didn’t meet their expectations.


Dear Hellraid fans,

We would like to officially announce that our dark fantasy FPP game Hellraid will not be released this year as previously planned, and the development of the game has been put on hold.

In the recent months we conducted an internal analysis and came to the conclusion that Hellraid, in its current shape and form, is not meeting our own expectations for this project. Therefore, we decided the best course of action would be to send it back to the drawing board and invent our dark fantasy title anew.

In the meantime, we will consolidate our development resources and focus on further expansion of our Dying Light franchise.

We wish to thank all our fans for your support – you’re the best!


The game did not look bad from what was showed to us via game screenshots and Game Features Trailer (on the bottom of the post), it is quite interesting what is the real reason of their “redo.” For other speculations and your opinions, please visit our forums.
