‘Dead Island 2’ Still Kicking, According To Dev

Fans of Deep Silver’s Dead Island have been holding out for the sequel since it was announced over three years ago. Even after the game missed its original Spring 2015 release date, subsequently changed developers, and has had no update since March 2016, the game is still alive.

According to Deep Silver (who spoke with Eurogamer), the game is still in development. “Dead Island 2 is in development at Sumo Digital, and we are excited by the progress the team are making with Deep Silver’s most successful IP. When we are ready to share more information, we will.”

While on one hand, it’s good to hear that development is still active, on the other, the statement sounds like a stock answer that doesn’t tell us anything that we don’t already know. Looks like we’ll be going back to the waiting game for a bit.

The original Dead Island came out in 2011 for Playstation 3, XBox 360 and PC.

    Very excited to hear it’s still a go. I’ll wait patiently as long as I know progress is being made.

    yeah… dying light already exists.

    its basically dead island, but with more fun mechanics.

      Dying Light is Dead Island’s more successful brother/sister/cousin who rubs it in at family reunions. Dead Island 2 is Dead Rising outside the Colorado mall.

    i am confused about this game and dead island riptide wouldn’t this actually be dead island 3 not 2?

  • James Allard

    I would be happy to purchase DLC that allows me to go to level 50. Let me complete a game, restart new with nothing, just level 50 and let me play barehanded.
