Dead Island 2 was first revealed during E3 2014 and it was supposed to be released in 2015. Many fans were excited to check its first trailer. After all, the first game had pleased the players and delivered an interesting experience, in times when zombie games were still new.
In the past, the development of Dead Island 2 was in charge of Yager (Spec Ops: The Line) and would be published by Deep Silver. However that same year the developers delayed its release claiming that they wanted to take the game to a new level. Finally, this level never reached, and neither did its proper launch happened.
Soon after its delay, Dead Island 2 went through several problems which led the game to gain a new developer Sumo Digital. But this new address did not last long either. The game currently under the supervision of THQ Nordic, according to CEO Lars Wingefors himself, is still in production. However, it is expected to release sometime in 2021 for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.
But with so many twists and turns, many fans are not even having any high expectations around the game and they are just waiting for the title to actually be finalized and released.
Today, an old build of Dead Island 2 appeared, dated 2015 and produced by Yager. However, it is an early-stage version, but from what can be seen in the video below, the game is still in a playable format. The build can even be found in some forums over the internet. But it is worth mentioning that it is always a risk to install something from a dubious source.
