Dead Island 2 is not dead, says Deep Silver
Back in March 2016, publisher Deep Silver had announced that the popular zombie series Dead Island was getting a sequel and it was getting developed by Sumo Digital, a UK based game studio. Prior to that announcement, Dead Island 2 was in development hell while game studio Yager Development (makers of Spec Ops: The Line) was working on it, but Deep Silver ended up parting ways with Yager Development in 2015.
With no news about Dead Island 2 since March 2016, fans were starting to wonder if the game had fallen victim to another development hell. In response to fan queries, Deep Silver has come forward and stated that Dead Island 2 is still alive and well into development.
Deep Silver has not shared any other progress report on sequel to Dead Island, which is Deep Silver’s most successful IP.
