Dying Light 2 Nightrunners quest can't progress as players can't talk to frank, issue acknowledged

Released a few days ago, Dying Light 2 is an action RPG game that features a post-apocalyptic zombie-infested world. The story takes place 22 years after the events of the original Dying Light.

Players can perform several actions such as climbing ledges, leaping off, wall running, and sliding. The game mainly consists of melee weapons that have a limited lifespan and degrade the more you use them in combat.


Haivng said that, few days ago a bunch of players reported they wereunable to complete the Now or Never quest because it was bugged.

And now, Dying Light 2 players are complaining (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) that they are unable to progress in the Nightrunners quest because they cannot talk to Frank at the Canteen with the game stuck at ‘Please Wait’.

Many are frustrated since the mission is part of the main storyline and is preventing them from completing the base game. Some said they tried restarting the game and their system but it is not helping at all.

You can see in the reports below what Dying Light 2 players who are unable to progress in the Nightrunner quest have to say.

Hey @DyingLightGame My friend @enrita11 has been streaming your game! We’ve been doing the co-op and we absolutely love it. Although we’ve now encountered our first soft lock glitch. We can’t speak with Frank. It says “Please Wait.” Fantastic game, though!

Hey techland, the game is amazing but i have run in to a huge problem/bug/glitch. Im on the quest nightrunners and im supposed to talk to frank at the fish eye but it just says ”please wait” and has for the last week. Cant play the story wich is a huge letdown :/ (Ps5)
