Down and out?
We are hearing from other sources that while Dead Island 2 may have been forgotten about by the players, over at Deep Silver things are a little different. Development has been handed to Sumo Digital. From various comments made by Deep Silver they are excited by the progress the team is making with their IP.
If you will recall the previous developer, Yager Productions, and Deep Silver parted ways in the summer of 2015 and things only got worse for Yager. Due to the fallout, Yager Productions was forced to file for bankruptcy.
So the big question fans of the original game have, when is the release date. At this time nothing has been released and Deep Silver is keeping quite on the matter. If game development is going as hinted we expect a late 2017 or Q1 release but don’t hold your breath.
