Dead Island 2 Will Not Be Released Until 2016
You're going to have to reschedule your trip to paradise.

Deep Silver, the publisher behind Dead Island 2, has announced that the game has been pushed back to 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Deep Silver went into a little bit more detail as to why the delay past Spring 2015 for Dead Island 2 was necessary on TwitLonger.

We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. 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.

Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage.

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.

– Team Dead Island 2
