In case you’re wondering why we haven’t heard much about Dead Island 2 lately, it looks like we’ve now got our answer; the developers want to stuff a lot more content and polish into it and to make that happen, the game won’t see the light of day this year.
Instead, Dead Island 2 is now set to release sometime in 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
Check out the full statement from the Dead Island 2 team below.
“We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.
And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015.
We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn’t reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016.
Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage.
We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result.”
