I was at a lecture that was about two artists from sumo and they announced it at that lecture it was amazing seeing everyone get excited. though personally I am not a dead island fan but sumo are an amazing developer so I know they will do well

i am happy to see this back in production... but, development hell never usually results in a stellar game. so, being cautious, i would wait a few months for the reviews to come in and DLC to come out... and a price drop. The first one was fun with friends, but not something i'd pay $60+ for...

If Sumo is making it then expect ultra hard as fuck achievements like in Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed. Because of the hell I went through (and will have to go through as I haven't completed it due to health effects from the sheer rage at it's bullshit difficulty) I will never get a game made by Sumo ever. Even if it's the greatest game ever made in the history of the universe.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was an achievement like "beat the game on the hardest difficulty without taking damage once on your first try only using melee".

All I'm saying here.

Doominatorx6 said:Reminder that Techland, creators of the Dead Island IP, willingly gave up said IP to Deep Silver just because working with them was such a shitty experience that they didn't want to do again. They were constantly butting in to the development and changing things that didn't need to be changed.

Deep Silver can say what they want but it's pretty obvious Yager left the project for similar reasons.
Agreed. It was totally apparent in Dying Light that they were held back creatively with Dead Island.
Currently playing: The Divsion, LOTR War in The North

Liked the first Dead Island, but its kind of scary to see it being passed around, guess we will see how it turns out.

TheOtherBarber said:I read an article when I saw this news a couple of days ago that said Sumo has never made a bad game. I'd like to remind the writer of that article about Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox 360. Yikes.In all fairness, that was a port down to inferior hardware.

I don't think they are too worried whether they are going to sell it to you anyway with your 25 games in 7 years(including at 3 that came with the system in Kung fu panda, hexic, and indy).

You could probably find all sorts of companies that have a hard achievement in one of their games. Go finish Dragon Age, it isn't really a hard completion and you haven't touched it in a month.

I would like to know what these "creative differences" were.

I loved Dead Island, but with the team moving on to make Dying Light, is a continuation of this series really necessary? Dying light is the definitive first person melee zombie game. Dead Island 2 seems redundant.
