It’s Still Happening
Dead Island 2 was first announced in 2013, however due to a lack of information and updates from Sumo Digital and Deep Silver, fans have begun to forget about the game and its release. This has caused fans to think the game was simply dropped and is no longer in development, despite no official announcement from any official sources for Dead Island 2.
After some concern about the game and it’s progress on its release, Eurogamer reached out to Deep Silver for an update. They announced that Dead Island 2 is still in development, and that the publisher is “excited by the progress the team are making with Deep Silver’s most successful IP”.
It’s a tad bit concerning that the game is still in development after such an extensive period has passed. They are not the first ever corporation to do this with a highly anticipated game, however fans can hope that this will truly be “Deep Silver’s most successful IP”.
