Dying Light’s Director Wants Assassin’s Creed, Mortal Kombat Crossovers
Dying Light 2 was released in February 2022 to a paltry reception, but that didn’t stop Techland from pouring resources into the game, breathing more life into it with each new update. It has never been seen as being ‘as good as’ 2015’s Dying Light, but it’s getting better all the time, and Techland has a sizeable roadmap lined up to keep it active for as long as possible.
Recently, a ‘Vampire: The Masquerade’ crossover event went live on the streets of Dying Light 2, just in time for Halloween. Before that, a Payday 2 event was rolled out, charging players with the responsibility of looting abandoned stores to their heart’s content. There’s also a For Honor collab in development, which will be deployed later next month.
But that’s not enough for the franchise’s director.
More Crossovers — MORE!
In an interview with PCGamesN, Tymon Smektala – the franchise director of Dying Light – revealed that he has some dream collaborations that he’d love to work on. There are plenty of crossover events that would suit Dying Light 2 down to the ground, but some write themselves a little better than others.
My personal dream is to do a Mortal Kombat crossover. I’ll use this opportunity to hype it – maybe Ed Boon and the team will read this and get interested in it.
But it doesn’t end there. Smektala also revealed he’d love to see a crossover between Dying Light 2 and Assassin’s Creed. There’s more parkour in Dying Light 2 than you can shake a sword at, so it would be a natural pairing, that’s for sure — and the relationship is already there, given the impending For Honor collab.
On that note, Smektala said it would be ‘a dream’ to pull Mirror’s Edge’s ‘Faith’ into Dying Light 2. As a skilled combatant and a legendary parkour expert, she’d fit all too well in the zombie-packed title.
What do you think? Are there any Dying Light 2 crossovers you’d like to see?
