A build from a supposedly scrapped version has leaked online.

Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 was a game that was announced years ago, but then went silent. The developer of the first game, Techland, left the IP to create their own take on the idea in Dying Light, and since then publisher Deep Silver has seemingly been trying to pull something together for the game. Despite being MIA for over a half a decade, the publisher has contended that the game is still alive. Now, an interesting little artifact about the game has unexpectedly leaked.

Apparently, a very early build of a 2015 version of the game has been making the rounds, and several screenshots have been grabbed by some Twitter users, which you can see below. It’s unclear where the leak came from, so take this with a grain of salt, but apparently it’s confirmed that a version is out there. What’s here actually looks pretty polished, but apparently it’s not very stable and the build is obviously incomplete.

This version was the one being done by Yager. It has a style much closer to one seen in the Escape From Dead Island spin-off than the first title. Yager is no longer on the title, with the development now shifted over to Dambuster Studios. So, the game most likely looks quite different now- but it is an interesting look at what could have been.
