Remember Dead Island 2? THQ Nordic promised that it was still “in the works”, though whether that meant it would be coming any time soon or not remained a mystery. Until now, that is – the publisher has announced in its Q1 FY2019 report that Dambuster Studios, which made Homefront: The Revolution, is now in charge of development.
To say that Dead Island 2 has seen some delays would be an understatement. The title was originally in development at YAGER before being shuffled off to Sumo Digital. Ever since it’s announcement in 2014, there have been constant reassurances – in 2016, 2017 and 2018 along with this year – that the title is still coming.
The real question is whether Dead Island 2 will possibly look at releasing for next-gen consoles as well as current-gen. We know that there will be exclusive content for PS4 (including 30 day beta access) but we’ll have to see about the rest later. In the meantime, check out our thoughts on Dambuster’s rather underwhelming Homefront: The Revolution.
