Dead Island 2 PS4 PlayStation 4

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 focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage," a spokesperson said. "We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result." Well, at least there's no shortage of zombie games on the market, eh?
