Sumo Digital have confirmed in a statement that Dead Island 2 is still in development.
For those that don’t know about the title, a trailer below shows gameplay that was released in 2014. Trailer courtesy of IGN.
The statement made by Sumo Digital Features below:
“We are also incredibly proud to be working on the highly anticipated ‘Crackdown 3’ (Xbox One) and ‘Dead Island 2’ (multi-platform) plus several other exciting but yet unannounced projects.”
I hope for a 2017 release for the game as I was a huge fan of Dead Island 1 and Dead Island Riptide. While my highlight is silly, the ultimate feature for me was when you hit the zombies, the flesh would deteriorate. The RPG elements, the combat, the zombies all made Dead Island, the perfect zombie game.
