Developer Techland revealed that the game, which was released in 2015, will be getting updated for next gen consoles. But they couldn’t say when that update would be coming.
“We’re currently working on a next-gen patch for Dying Light 1,” they said via Twitter. “More details coming in the future :)”

Dying Light may have been released over six years ago, but the popular survival horror game still receives updates – even with its sequel due to launch in February 2022. A recent update to Dying Light, released yesterday, includes additions to its Hellraid DLC as well as minor bug fixes.
Dying Light Update 1.39 (also known as Dying Light Enhanced Edition Update 1.30) includes:
Support for Hellraid DLC including:
- New items and blueprints
- New explorable map areas in Raid Mode
- New Armory section in HUB area
- New Potions on Raid Mode map
- Updated Tutorial Screens and new Hints
Support for Live Events
- New weapons and blueprints
- New outfit with new perk/skill
- New thematic additions to Slums and Old Town maps
Support for ‘Be the Zombie’ mode
- Balancing update
Support for additional dockets
Fix for open inventory crash after back from Hellraid
Minor bug fixes
A next gen patch would presumably bring the original Dying Light up to modern standards, with the oft requested 4k resolution and 60fps. But other next gen features could also be added such as haptic feedback and adaptive triggers for the PS5’s DualSense controllers.
Elsewhere, Metroid Dread developers have spoken out after being left out of the credits.
