With the recent launch of Survivors, Deep Silver reminds us that Dead Island 2 is still on the way.
Yesterday we reported on a new tower defense game using the Dead Island brand, and the follow-up was inevitable: What about Dead Island 2? The sequel was announced back in 2014, and the last we heard about it was 2017 – when Deep Silver said it was still development.
At least that much hasn’t changed.
Dead Island 2 is still in development and we will share more on this at a later stage.

This tweet from the official Dead Island account (thanks GamesRadar) says there will be more to share at a later date.
Techland developed the original Dead Island back in 2011, but moved onto Dying Light instead of a direct sequel. After a period of uncertainty, the project was taken over by Sumo Digital, which might explain the delays.
Dead Island 2 is slated to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Assuming the next console generation hasn’t started yet, of course.
