After getting delayed multiple times, Dying Light 2: Stay Human finally has a release date and it is quite near. The preloads for the game has begun and players are excited to download their copy of the game. However, Steam users are facing the issue that their download is seemingly stuck. Worry not because this guide will show you how to fix Dying Light 2 download stuck on Steam.

The same method can be applied to the Epic Games version if you are downloading the game over there. However, this guide will be focused on Steam since most players are facing difficulties over there. With that said, let’s dive right in and take a look at how you can fix the Dying Light 2 download stuck on Steam or the Epic Games Store.

Dying Light 2: How To Fix Download Stuck On Steam

Oftentimes, you might think that the download or installation process is stuck. However, that is not the case since Steam can take some time to verify all of the files. It can take longer depending on the size of the game and how many files the game has. However, if you want to make sure that the download is not stuck, you can try the following steps:

  1. Click on the Windows icon on your taskbar, and select Settings
  2. Look for Update & Security
  3. Open Windows Security
  4. Select Virus & threat protection
  5. Click on Manage settings
  6. Press on Add or remove exclusions
  7. Click on Add an exclusion
  8. Select Folder
  9. Add the steamapps folder
  10. Pause the download
  11. Start it again

Since Dying Light 2 has a large file size, it might take some time to download. Previously, Steam used to download the game in one tab and install it in another. Since then, it has evolved and it does both things simultaneously. That is why it can often take time to download the game.

On top of that, if you are installing the game on your HDD, it will take longer than on an SSD. Plus, the servers could be overloaded like they did with God of War. Sometimes, waiting is the best course of action.

Additional Tips

In case the previous method did not work for you, here are some additional tips you can try:

  • Pause the download and let the speed hit 0.
    • Start the download again to see if it works or not
  • Restart Steam
  • Restart your PC
  • Cancel the download and restart all over
