Almost 8 years ago, publisher and rights holder Deep Silver announced a sequel to the action role-playing game Dead Island in cooperation with the German developer studio Yager Development. But since then, thanks to a change of developers and various problems in the development process, the zombie project was almost forgotten. Nevertheless, Deep Silver spoke up a few weeks ago and made it clear that Dead Island 2 would still be in development, and that they were making steady progress. Now, new hints could point to a release later this year.
When Is The Release Of Dead Island 2?
Insider Colin Moriarty spread rumors about an upcoming release of the action role-playing game in the current podcast episode Sacred Symbols. Moriarty relies on some unnamed sources that are supposed to be involved in the development process of Dead Island 2. According to them, the zombie shooter should be released this year. More specifically, Moriarty puts September or October 2022 as the earliest possible release date. Something similar was said by insider Tom Henderson in February this year.
