Dying Light annulé sur PS3 et Xbox 360

Parce que les gens de chez Techland ne sont pas très jouasses à l'idée de voir des consoles souffrir de combustions spontanées, ils ont décidé que leur FPS zombifié de survie Dying Light ne sortira finalement que sur PC, PS4 et Xbox One, préférant jeter les opus PS3 et Xbox 360 dans le composte. Pour résumer à donf les raisons officielles évoquées sur Facebook : trop galère de faire tourner le jeu tel qu'il est sur les old-gen, pas moyen de faire des concessions, et besoin du full power du PC ainsi que des new-gen pour que tout se déroule sans accroc.

Dear Gamers,

As you probably know, we’re wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience.

Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.

Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

We hope you understand the hard choice we’ve had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can’t wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We’re looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015.

Mais pas de panique, Lumière Mourrante sortira toujours le 28 janvier sur les machines qui n'ont pas été sacrifiées.
