Dead Island 2

Publisher Deep Silver’s Dead Island 2 is perhaps most famously known for its excessively protracted development cycle. Having been announced all the way back in 2014, and now after changing multiple developers and having nothing to show for it, most fans have almost given up hope on ever seeing the game rise from the depths of development hell ever again.

However, reputable industry insider Tom Henderson has claimed in his new video (which you can check out below) that Dead Island 2 might finally be re-announced and released this year. According to his sources, development has been going rather smoothly as of late. Developer Dambuster Studios is currently eyeing for a Q4 2022 release with PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC most likely being the target platforms. Henderson also mentioned that release dates could be pushed up to next year should any problems arise.

Additionally, he also talks about the updated plot of the game, where the player character crashes into Hollywood after a zombie outbreak on a plane, following which it’s up to you to survive. Of course, it’s always advisable to take these rumours with a pinch of salt, especially given Dead Island 2‘s track record. However, it would be great to see it returning again, and hopefully being a lot better than before.
