According to Techland, if you are experiencing problems with the game crashing, then the solution is to clear your console cache. It's important to emphasise that following this process will not delete any of your saved data from the game.

Before you do that though, make sure you have checked that you have downloaded and installed any pending updates for the game.

Clear Cache On PlayStation 4

To clear the cache on your PS4 console, complete the following steps:

  • Start by switching off your PS4 using the power button on the front panel of the console.
  • Once the PS4 is off, press and hold the power button until you hear two beeps: the first will be as you press the button, the second about seven seconds later.
  • Use a compatible USB cable to plug the DualShock controller into the console. Press the PS button on the controller.
  • Select Rebuild Database.

Clear Cache On PlayStation 5

If you have a PS5, then the process is slightly different:

  • Start by turning off the console fully. This means a proper switch-off, rather than using Rest Mode.
  • Wait for twenty seconds or so, and then unplug the console from the mains power supply.
  • Leave your PS5 unplugged for a couple of minutes.
  • After this time has elapsed, plug the console back in, and power it up.
  • Try relaunching Dying Light 2, to see whether the issue is resolved.

But given the emphasis on ensuring that updates are installed as soon as possible, and taken in conjunction with the wide range of other known issues with the game, there is a strong suspicion that this has an underlying cause.
