Dying Light no longer a PS3 and 360 game

"We have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind."

There will no longer be PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of upcoming zombie game Dying Light.

Polish developer Techland - the studio that created Dead Island - explained on Facebook that the older consoles "just couldn't run the game and stay true to the core vision".

It's a core vision that includes an open-world, and fluid, free-running traversal of it. Plus, there's all the lighting and physics that the newer machines are capable of. They add up to the "truly next-gen experience" Techland wants to create.

"Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC," Techland explained.

"Put simply, older consoles just couldn't run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time. "

Dying Light - PC, PS4 and Xbox One - is due 30th January.
