We've all been waiting an eternity for Dead Island 2 to finally arrive, and now, Deep Silver has announced it's launching slightly sooner than expected.

The game was delayed to 28th April 2023, but now, the publisher has confirmed the zombie-slaying, open world action title will launch one week earlier, on 21st April:

The news comes alongside the announcement that the project has gone gold, essentially meaning the game's done and ready for distribution. We expect there will be post-launch patches, as with any game, but the bulk of the work is complete.
