Both nail'd and Call Of Juarez: The Cartel — Techland's other two releases this year — suffered from the same fate. But Dead Island was different; it had polish, and for the first time in the developer's history, it seemed to have a budget too. It wasn't going to take long before hints about a sequel cropped up online.

And Siliconera's the one that's got the dirt. It's spotted a trademark filed by developer Techland for a game called Dead World. Sounds like a sequel to us.
