It’s been a long and bumpy road for Dead Island 2 since its E3 reveal way back in 2014. However, Deep Silver have now spoken out and confirmed that the title is still in development whilst speaking to Eurogamer.
Since the announcement four years ago, there has been a change of developer as Yager departed amid differing visions of the game with Deep Silver. Sumo Digital were put in charge of delivering the next installment in the series in March 2016 and this is the last we have heard of the games development. Eurogamer took Deep Silver to task and asked outright for an update on the title. Deep Silver responded:
“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.”
Confirmation that Dead Island 2 is still alive and not wallowing with the undead in the cancelled bin will come as a welcome piece of news to fans of the series. In the emantime, we hope to hear more on Sumo Digitals progress at E3 this year. In the meantime, check out the games original trailer. Though it is likely to have changed drastically since its unveiling.
