Techland has reassured players that fixes for Dying Light 2 co-op issues are being prioritized right now and the studio will provide an update in due course. The game’s subreddit has been inundated with complaints about disconnections in co-op mode as well as trouble redeeming in-game content. The latter is also “on top” of Techland’s list.
When will Dying Light 2 co-op issues be fixed?
According to lead designer Tymon Smektala, Dying Light 2 co-op disconnections stem from high traffic and it’s something the studio is discussing with Sony, Microsoft, and Epic Games. While Techland is fixing whatever’s causing the problem on its side, Smektala claims that the aforementioned partners need to help unclog servers as well. There’s currently no ETA.
Those who are experiencing flickering issues on the PS5 will have to switch modes as a workaround until a patch is rolled out. Again, there’s no ETA but Smektala said that it should be out “soon.” The good news is that there is an easy fix for missing interaction buttons: use call for help/distress call option.
Dear gamers, thank you for your feedback. Two things on the top of our list: disconnects in co-op mode and problems with redeeming awards, codes, and other in-game content, including Twitch Drops from TechlandGG. Our team is on it. We will update you on the progress.

Going but some updates.
1) coop – issues come from crazy demand; we’re fixing on our side and discussing with partners (epic/ms/Sony) so they unclog servers
2) ps5 flickering – patch incoming (soon, but no date), workaround is to use different mode
3) achievements – fix…
