Techland says Dying Light 2 is planned to be a cross-gen title on the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett

Whenever a console generation comes to an end and new systems are released, high-budget AAA games still manage to release on the previous generation's hardware, mostly due to the larger install base. The likes of Destiny 1, Metal Gear Solid V, and Titanfall all released for both the past and present iterations of Xbox and PlayStation's respective consoles at the time. Now, as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 reach their twilight years, with "next-gen" discussions and rumors picking up, it looks like it might be time for developers to release cross-generation games once more. Techland Publishing, the team in charge of next year's Dying Light 2 appears to have plans to release the game for not only just PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, but also whatever the future may bring.

In an interview, a company representative stated, "Techland always has an eye on the latest new toys. The plan since the beginning of production has been to make Dying Light 2 a cross-generational title", giving the impression that we might see a staggered release for Dying Light 2. Currently, the game is scheduled to release in the first half of 2020, which is a bit earlier than Microsoft's Project Scarlett's "Holiday 2020" window. And at the time of writing, we only know for certain that the "PlayStation 5" will not release before the end of April 2020. If Techland does manage to carry out their plan, that means we're either going to see a delay on Dying Light 2, or a "definitive" release a few months later.

Okay. Is Scarlet even next gen? Just sounds like an even more powerful Xbox one x...
Erm...yes? It's not going to be an Xbox One revision, it's a completely separate console? No idea what makes you think it wouldn't be.

As to the news, makes sense since the release date is so close to the next gen consoles, I imagine most of the bigger third party games that have a mid-late 2020 release date for the PS4/Xbone will also have "definitive" versions for the PS5/Scarlett anyways. I just hope the third party launch titles for next gen are actually new games, and not re-releases of old stuff.

Probably because of how it was announced? At least the compatibility. It wasn't a straight "this is a new console" announcement.

? They literally called it a next generation console in their reveal trailer. Is that not straightforward enough for you? It's not a revision, it's a new console.
