Dead Island 2 Officially Delayed
Deep Silver and Yager have officially announced that the zombie survival title has been delayed until 2016.
On twitter the publisher stated that despite all attempts to keep the release date on track, they had made the decision to delay the title due to the fact that it did not meet their expectations.
“We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level,” the game’s official Twitter reads. “A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.
“And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015.
“We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn’t reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016.”
While the game has been delayed to next year, it isn’t yet known exactly when in 2016 that we’ll be able to get our hands on the hotly anticipated sequel.
“Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage,” the statement adds.
“We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result.”
Dead Island 2 is set to release on PS4, and Xbox One in 2016.
