Dead Island

Dead Island 2 is Still Alive, Apparently

Published: December 3, 2020 10:11 AM



Dead Island 2 has had a tumultuous history to say the least, but it now appears that there might be some light at the end of the tunnel. Earlier today, the Official Deep Silver Twitter broke its silence on Dead Island 2, where one user stated that they were giving up because Dead Island 2 wasn't coming, and that they should "just move on to Dying Light". 

In response Deep Silver said this:


When pressed further, Deep Silver said they were not "quite ready" to talk about the next Dead Island title, but when they do they'll see it on Deep Silver's Twitter, which both says a lot and not very much at all, which is par for the course at this point. Why? Because the Dead Island 2 cinematic was released six years ago. You heard me right. Six. Check it out below:

It seems it happened in another lifetime, but apparently Dead Island 2 is still trucking on, despite the first game being released almost a full decade ago in 2011. During the course of Dead Island 2's development, there have been three separate studios that have thought about taking it on or tried to make it and bowed out. Techland, the original developer, bowed out to develop the aforementioned Dying Light, Yager Entertainment was announced as the developer in E3 2014 only to bow out next year, Sumo Digital took it over only to bow out again in 2019. It is now currently in the hands of Dambuster Studios, which is an internal studio at Deep Silver, who presumably just want the game out at this point. 


If you're curious about the original Dead Island, you can check out it on Steam for a cool $19.99 American Dollarydoos. For more Dead Island 2 news, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
