Techland’s original Dying Light has received a PS5 and Xbox Series X|S rating following last week’s next-gen patch announcement.

Last month, Techland announced the arrival of Dying Light on the Nintendo Switch via the Dying Light: Platinum Edition. This edition, containing all of the game’s DLCs and skin bundles, is releasing globally tomorrow, and interestingly, the game has now also received a rating for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.

Last week, developer Techland confirmed that it’s currently working on a next-gen update for the game with more details to follow shortly.

From the looks of it, however, a next-gen release of the game is also in the works as the ESRB has recently rated it for both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.  So aside from a next-gen patch for those who own the PS4 or Xbox One version of the game, it seems that we’re also looking at a re-release of the game on the next-gen consoles.
