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 told Eurogamer that yes, it's still in the works at British studio Sumo Digital.

"Dead Island 2 is in development at Sumo Digital, and we are excited by the progress the team are making with Deep Silver's most successful IP. When we are ready to share more information, we will," reads a statement from the company. Clearly the title's development hasn't gone as smoothly as intended, but this at least confirms that it's still alive.
