Dead Island 2 was supposed to be revealed again later this year, after several years of troubled development following an announcement in 2014.
Zombie Dead Island 2 is expected to be revealed again later this year. The sequel to Techland’s Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide was originally announced eight years ago at E3, but due to “horrifying” development, Dead Island 2 has long been dormant.
When Dead Island first came out, many fans were surprised by its tone and gameplay after it was introduced, which included a trailer like a short film revolving around the final moments of a movie. The family at the resort was destroyed by the undead. The title itself is a first-person action RPG, with a primary focus on melee combat, as players can craft and modify their weapons to survive. While Dead Island: Riptide does a similar intro with an astonishing trailer that features a couple accepting their fate as zombies plunge into their washed-out boat, the trailer details reveals Dead Island 2 much more vividly in both visuals and musical choices, with a jogger in a remote California location slowly turning into a zombie as carnage rages around him and Pigeon John’s “The Bomb” explodes through his headphones. The arrival of Dead Island 2 has been expected for some time, with the recent reveal of Goat Simulator 3 at the Summer Game Fest playing up to expectations by parodying Dead Island 2’s 2014 trailer almost ever. moment (only more goats and less zombies).
According to Tom Henderson, this re-reveal could come later this year. Henderson cites an anonymous source who believes a reveal at The Game Awards in December “would make a lot of sense” and reveals some more information around the product itself. Henderson’s source claims that Dead Island 2 will take place in a number of different locations, including Hollywood and San Francisco, which matches the visuals of its reveal trailer. They also claim that Dead Island 2 will have a big focus on cooperative gameplay – like its predecessors, allowing for four-player co-op and will introduce six new characters to the series, rather than follow-up. after Dead Island and Dead Island: Riptide – whose fates are not clear.
Part of the reason many people believe there’s been little or no news surrounding Dead Island 2 is because of its development. During its development, the game changed studios several times. Yager Development was originally planned to direct Dead Island 2 after the series was handed over from Techland, who went on to develop the parkour-heavy survival horror franchise Dying Light but was dropped from the project. in 2015 and was replaced by Sumo Digital the following year. Eventually, Sumo Digital will also be scrapped, with Deep Silver’s Dambuster Studios taking over the project in 2019.
If Henderson’s source is correct and Dead Island 2 is revealed again, it’s good news for fans who have been waiting for the zombie RPG for a long time. With these new footage, it will be interesting to see how Dambuster’s development has built or changed this brand from the game demos and leak footage that fans have passed along over the past eight years, This has received a positive response from fans.
