In recent days, allegations of sexual harassment have been levelled against Chris Avellone, the narrative designer for Techlands upcoming title Dying Light 2. In retaliation to those allegations techland have announced that he will no longer work for them.
Here's the statement from Techland:
"Here's the statement regarding our cooperation with Chris Avellone:"
"We treat matters of sexual harassment and disrespect with utmost care, and have no tolerance for such behaviors - it applies to both our em ployees as wel I as external consultants, Chris among them. This is why, together with Chris Avellone, we've decided to end our cooperation.
We are still working towards delivering the experience we promised in Dying Light 2. Both our narrative team, which Chris supported, and the whole development team of Dying Light 2 continue progressing efficiently, according to the plan revised at the beginning ofthe year."
Dying Light is currently still "postponed indefinitely" so who knows what this decision will mean for the release date but we will keep you updates when we hear more.
