You’d be forgiven for thinking that Deep Silver had quietly pulled the plug on Dead Island 2. It was announced last year that UK-based Sumo Digital would handle development, but there have been no further updates since.
However, Eurogamer recently contacted Deep Silver to inquire about the game’s status and was told the following: “Dead Island 2 is in development at Sumo Digital, and we are excited by the progress the team are making with Deep Silver’s most successful IP. When we are ready to share more information, we will.”
So there you have it. Dead Island 2 has not been cancelled after all. Does this mean that it might be unveiled at E3 next month? Seems pretty damn likely.
