Deep Silver look set to launch a new, current generation collection of re-releases of Dead Island and Dead Island Riptide as Dead Island Definitive Collection on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, according to North American retailer Best Buy. The collection will also include a brand new standalone 16-bit game called Dead Island: Retro Revenge.
Both games were released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC last generation. While Riptide met with a lot of criticism, the original Dead Island was generally well received. These re-releases will probably keep the Dead Island brand alive, even as Deep Silver work through the development issues that Dead Island 2 seems to have run into.
As for what Dead Island Retro Revenge is, who knows? Let’s hope it comes to PC too, which will not be getting the Definitive Collection. Maybe a cheap Steam re-release?
