Det kræver vist ikke stor branchekendskab at kunne se, at Techland har haft besværligheder med at udvikle Dying Light 2. Et utal af rygter har påstået at der har været stor konflikt imellem de ledende ansatte på holdet bag, og desuden har flere ansvarshavende forladt projektet igennem årene. Senest var det Pawl Selinger der forlod Techland, efter 22 års tro tjeneste.
Han beskrev sig selv som værende Art Director på projektet, en vigtig tjans fra start til slut, men i en meddelelse til WCCFTech ønsker Techland at slå fast, at det var han faktisk... overhovedet ikke?
"Paweł Selinger, who has been the narration designer for the last two years, decided at the end of 2020 to end his cooperation with Techland and to pursue his further career elsewhere. Paweł spent most of his professional life at Techland and he, among others, takes credit for the success of the series Call of Juarez. He left a large piece of himself with Dying Light 2, as he worked on the project from the very beginning. His duties, ie. the narrative department, were taken over by Piotr Szymanek in October 2020.
We would like to reassure all fans of the upcoming Dying Light 2 that the position of art director is not threatened and has been held by Eric Cochonneau since November 2019. Eric has been taking care of every aspect of the upcoming production ever since and the team under his leadership is doing their best to offer players the best game possible. We will be sharing exciting news about Dying Light 2 soon!"
Det kan naturligvis være at Selinger ikke fik opdateret sin LinkedIn, ellers forsøger Techland at diskreditere ham for at få det til at ligne at projektet ikke påvirkes af hans exit.
