In an interview with Eurogamer, CEO Paweł Marchewka of Polish developer Techland (Dying Light, shown) mentioned that the company is working on two new games, with heavy speculation that one of them is Dying Light 2.

The first Marchewka says is a large open-world fantasy title with "RPG elements" that also contains co-op multiplayer. Despite the shared fantasy elements, Marchewka says that this new title is not Hellraid, which was put on hold.

The other title is being handled by Techland's internal studio in Wrocław, Poland – the one who did the first Dying Light. Although the CEO wouldn't say whether the new title being done at Wrocław is specifically Dying Light 2, in the interview Marchewka did mention a direct sequel for the series. The PR manager for the studio also said that the Dying Light franchise was "more important for us" than fellow Techland-developed property Dead Island.

While Techland made the first Dead Island, Deep Silver owns the IP, and has partnered with Sumo Digital for the upcoming Dead Island 2.

Marchewka says that both of its new games have been in development for about a year and should be released with three years.

The company has also promised to support Dying Light through 2016.
