Techland is currently working on “a big patch” for Dying Light 2, which was released in February.
“This patch will introduce fixes for deathloop, ragdoll animations, user interface, and much more!” it said last Friday.
The studio said it was aiming to release the update for PC this week and for consoles potentially a few days later.
VGC’s Dying Light 2 review called the game an uninspiring adventure saved by excellent parkour.
In January, Dying Light 2’s Switch release was pushed back significantly, with Techland now planning to deliver the game within six months of the other versions.
