Dead Island 2: It Was Worth Waiting Almost 10 Years!

The production of Dead Island 2 is actually a story of many ups and downs. The title was almost 10 years in development and during that time it changed devs twice. As a result, it was assumed that the final version would not look very good.

In the end though, players' fears proved unfounded, and the game received very good reviews. Interestingly, the developers from Dambuster Studios admitted that this difficult path may have contributed to some extent to the better reception of the title.

Per Metacritic:

Dead Island 2 is everything a Dead Island fan could ask for. Between its addicting combat mechanics, excellent character and gear progression systems, hilariously satirical writing, and goretastic presentation, this long-awaited sequel has proven it was worth the wait.

Dead Island 2 will definitely not provide you with emotional stories or moral dilemmas, it's all about casual, uncomplicated and very satisfying fun. Seems like Dead Island 2 is not so dead after all.

We wish you lots of fun while saving LA!
