The Island wasn't dead enough, apparently.

Deep Silver Drops Yager from Dead Island 2 Development

Dead Island 2 was noticeably absent from E3 this year. We spotted the beginnings of the title last year and had high hopes for what the game would do in the hands of a brand new developer in Yager Interactive. But alas all was not well with the game's publisher Deep Silver not happy with the direction or progress of the title, sending along an official statement on the development status.

2015's motto is now "See you in 2016!"

Dead Island 2 Delayed Until 2016

2015 is tossing another one of its biggest tent pole games to it's slightly younger brother, 2016. Developer Yager announced via their Twitter page that Dead Island 2 would be delayed until sometime next year.

[E3 2014] - Dead Island 2 Is Wacky and Potentially Awesome

A few months after the events of the first Dead Island, the infection spread to the continental United States and the state (island?) of California has been quarantined by the government. While the zombie outbreak is under control in Dead Island 2, there are still uninfected humans inside the quarantine zone. The catch here is that these uninfected...

[E3 2014] - More Co-Op Zombie Looting in Dead Island 2

Deep Silver publishing has released a few Dead Island games since the initial one hit back in 2011 with a trailer that was equal parts terrifying and poignant with a soundtrack that was evocative of the TV show "Lost." The FPS zombie killing co-op loot fest is back in a direct sequel, Dead Island 2, with a trailer that's a little more upbeat and comical, but just a touch disturbing and subversive in its own right.
