Techland Sp. z o.o. is a Polish video game developer and publisher founded in 1991 by Paweł Marchewka. It developed Western-themed first-person shooter Call of Juarez (2006) and its prequel Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood (2009), as well as first-person survival horror video games Dead Island (2011) and Dying Light (2015). The company is headquartered in Ostrów Wielkopolski in central Poland and has offices in Wrocław and Warsaw.
Techland started as a distributor of computer software and created Crime Cities, the first game developed in-house, in 2000. Techland released sci-fi first person shooter Chrome in 2003. A prequel titled Chrome: Specforce was released in 2005. Techland has also developed driving games including rally simulation games Xpand Rally and Xpand Rally Xtreme and Volkswagen-licensed GTI Racing (2006).
Techland's proprietary Chrome Engine of 2003 has been developed further. ChromeEngine 4 was completed in 2006 and provided support for the PlayStation 3.
In 2015 Techland released Dying Light, a first-person survival horror game for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. An expansion for the game, titled Dying Light: The Following, was released in February 2016.
On 30 March 2018, Call of Juarez: The Cartel and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger were briefly delisted from Steam, Xbox Live, and PlayStation Network citing a publishing dispute with Ubisoft. The video games returned to those storefronts in April 2018 with Techland as the sole publisher.
