Dead Island 2 PS4 PlayStation 4

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. Fast forward to today, and publisher THQ Nordic has provided us with a (tiny) update on the elusive game.

During a recent presentation to investors, the company outlined its upcoming slate of announced software, including Dead Island 2. Unfortunately, the only comment passed on the game is that it's "still being worked on," and to "stay tuned." That's all we get.

We suppose there's a slim chance it'll make an appearance at E3 2019, but let's not get our hopes up. At this point, you have to also consider whether it's been transformed into a next-gen title. We're just spitballing now - here's hoping we get some concrete information soon. Are you still eagerly awaiting Dead Island 2? Shuffle into the comments below.
