Dead Island 2 News
It still exists, apparently
Development of Dead Island 2 was recently moved to a third studio, but that's no bad thing according to Koch Media CEO Klemens Kundratitz. The man at the helm of a ludicrous amount of IPs manages to spin the situation into a positive, despite the fact that the game hasn't been seen or heard from in any real capacity for...
Homefront: The Revolution dev at the helm
Dead Island 2 still exists, apparently. The open-world zombie title, announced all the way back at E3 2014, has changed developers for a second time, making Dambuster Studios the third team to work on the project. In a new report from publishing powerhouse THQ Nordic, it is explained that development of th
Not dead yet
It's been nearly five years since the announcement of Dead Island 2. Initially announced all the way back at E3 2014, the sequel to the cult hit zombie title has been MIA all this time. It's switched developers, with Sumo Digital taking over from Yager Interactive, but news since has been virtually non-existent.
Not dead yet
Want to know something crazy? We played Dead Island 2 about four years ago. The demo was like this co-op zombie horde thing, and frankly it wasn’t very good, but we absolutely spent some time with it. Since then, the project has been handed to a different developer (Sumo Digital) and presumably rebooted behind the scenes. And...
Deep Silver says sequel's still coming
Hey, remember Dead Island 2? No, not Dying Light - we mean the actual sequel to Dead Island that was announced ages ago and then just kind of... Shuffled off a cliff. The title was originally set to launch back in 2015, and it's been over a year since we last heard about the game, but publisher Deep Silver has...
Back from the dead
Dead Island 2 has been re-animated by Sheffield-based studio Sumo Digital. Those of you with long memories may recall that the title was in production at Spec Ops: The Line maker Yager, and even was announced during a PlayStation press conference. But despite us getting hands-on time with the release, the German organisation...
Get back in that grave
Dead Island 2 has seen its fair share of development troubles, but things are now coming to a temporary close, as publisher Deep Silver has announced that it's cutting ties with German developer Yager Development. No specific reasons were given, but it's easy to infer that the title's quality was a big problem. "With Dead...
Dead and buried
The success of spiritual successor Dying Light looks to have scared off publisher Deep Silver, as Dead Island 2 -- previously due out this spring -- has been delayed into 2016. Writing as part of an extended tweet on the game's official social media profile, the studio said that it hasn't achieved its goals yet. "Right now we are...
It's a zombie eat zombie world
This is a strange one, isn't it? Techland, the developer behind the original Dead Island, went on to create the rather enjoyable Dying Light after departing from publisher Deep Silver. Meanwhile, the former's getting a sequel in the form of Dead Island 2, but as Videogamer.com cleverly points out, we haven't seen or...
Hot as Hell
The original Dead Island seemed to get its head turned by that iconic debut trailer. While it was ostensibly a silly co-operative zombie slayer, said first footage gave gamers expectations that the final product could never live up to. Fortunately, the folks over at German developer Yager appear to be setting out their stall much more...
Hell on Earth
German convention GamesCom is scarily close, which means that the Push Square office is all of a flutter right now. One thing that’s improved our mood, however, is news that Dead Island 2 is set to infect the Cologne show later this month. The sequel will be playable at the expo, which actually marks the first time that local...
Dead Island 2 will be coming to PlayStation 4 in mid-2015, Sony announced at its E3 press conference. The gratuitously gory brawler will feature 8 player multiplayer, as well as multiple character classes, and a deep skill system. What's more, if you're playing on the Japanese giant's super system you'll receive as yet unannounced...
