Dead Island 2 is the sequel game that goes by the same name, Dead Island, which was revealed back in E3 2014. The first game was created by Techland and was a huge success. After this, the developers were planning a sequel, but they shifted their focus to Dying Light. Dead Island 2 was later passed to Yager Developments, and then Sumo Digital, and then Dambuster Studios. Now it is the end of 2019, and there is still no sign of when it will be releasing.

Many people thought that the game wasn’t going to be released and has been canceled because there was no word from the developers. But those rumors ended when Gamesindustry.biz interviewed Klemens Kundratitz, who is the CEO of Koch Media, who owns Deep Silver Publishing and is, in turn, part of THQ Nordic. He explained, “Look, Dead Island is a very important brand for us, and we’ve got to get it right. It’s just a testimony of our dedication to getting it right.”

He further added its a great story to tell everyone that it’s on its third studio, but we like to be judged on the end result, and we’re really confident that when it comes out, it’s going to be a kick-ass zombie game. We’ll certainly give it all our power.

Moreover, Kundratitz also confirmed that another studio, Volition, is still working on a new Saints Row game rather than a sequel to its spin-off Agents of Mayhem. He explained, “Saints Row is very close to our hearts, and we’ll talk about it next year. For the time being, we just wanted to get the word out that it’s coming and it’s going to be great.” This is good news for the fans of both of these games. There hasn’t been anything else revealed about it.

Dead Island 2 Release Date – Update

We are expecting Dead Island 2 to come out by Fall 2021 on the next-gen consoles, such as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Earlier Kundratitz revealed that the delay is because, they are really dedicated to getting the game right, and from whats going on in the world right now, because of Coronavirus, the game might get further delayed to Fall 2021 or later.
