There's some bad news for gamers hoping to be playing Dead Island 2 later this year, as the team have unfortunately announced a lengthy delay to the game. In an announcement via twitlonger, they stated:
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.So, Dead Island 2 is now expected to be released sometime in 2016. What are your feelings towards this delay?
We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Dead Island 2 achievements.
