Dying Light was definitely a successful game. While Warner Bros. published the first title, developer Techland maintained both the IP rights and the right of first refusal for the sequel and opted to publish Dying Light 2 themselves. While that is still the case, the Dying Light developer has sought out some aid from Square Enix in distribution and marketing.
That means that, while Square Enix has the world’s eyes on their show with Avengers and more, they will also show off a bit of Dying Light 2.
We’re excited to partner with the talented folks at @TechlandGames to deliver the highly anticipated #DyingLight2 to the Americas! More to be revealed during our Square Enix E3 Live 2019 event! https://t.co/PoQw4wVGyB #SquareEnixE3 pic.twitter.com/bk2IdtH5Ia

The game has been fairly highly anticipated since its announcement last year, especially paired with the reveal that writer Chris Avellone is acting as the narrative designer. Square Enix is definitely trying to make a show of their E3 presentation this year, having planted themselves in Sony’s former E3 press conference spot.
Square Enix’s E3 presentation will be on Monday, June 10 at 6:00 p.m. PT.
