Dead Island 2 has been stuck in developmental hell since it was announced back in 2014. The game’s development has been rough and was originally going to be developed by Studio Yager.
But things changed in 2015 when Deep Silver parted ways with Yager which further delayed the project and was later taken over by Sumo Digital as lead developer.
But since the announcement of Dead Island 2, the main developer has changed ownership a couple of times and this has caused the project to be pushed further back, but THQ Nordic the current publisher of Dead Island 2 has announced that Dead Island 2 is in the works and will be developed to be released in the future.
Though as of now there is no official date as to when it will be released or a time frame, it is nice to know that the studio hasn’t abandoned the project.
When Dead Island 2 was first announced back in 2014, it was said that the game would bring revolutionary crafting abilities and much more. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4 which will certainly enhance the game and make it much better than the prequel.
The game will also feature a “seamless” multiplayer option which will help players come together.
Hopefully, this E3 will bring some light to the project and we’ll maybe get to see a release date or get some new information on this. We will keep updating as and when we have new information regarding Dead Island 2.
