The news today from Dying Light developer Techland is that the upcoming game will be delayed by a bit to further focus on technological improvements with the engine and game.
We know you’ve been waiting on a Dying Light release date for quite some time now. After careful consideration, we have decided to release our upcoming game in February 2015. Since this means Dying Light will launch a few months later than originally planned, we feel obliged to explain the reasons that influenced this important decision.
When we started the development of Dying Light, we were committed to innovation. We wanted to give you a freedom of movement unprecedented in open-world games. After many improvements and months of hard work, we have now come so close to realizing our initial vision we feel we cannot stop before it is ready.

It’s never easy to deliver bad news, but what they lay out seems to make a lot of sense. If they can improve on what we’ve seen of the game thus far, a slight delay is understandable in the long run.
You can still pre-order Dying Light on Amazon, though the site doesn’t reflect the new date just site.
