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.
