Dead Island 2 is the rollercoaster game with several changes of developers and the subsequent issues associated with a hurdle development. Tom Henderson, a person that knows a bit about the industry, claims that Dead Island 2 is going to be re-revealed -later- this year. The exact date for it has not been revealed, but it could happen at The Game Awards. This movement makes a lot of sense.
Currently, Dambuster is working hard on the cooperative and the game is in a decent state of development. Dead Island 2 would include famous locations in Hollywood and San Francisco.
I enjoyed the first Dead Island, so, if the second part has been re-oriented to be a good game, I am in.
