Dead Island 2 Delayed to 2016

Deep Silver has announced a delay for Dead Island 2.

The E3 2014-announced game will forgo its planned spring 2015 release for one sometime next year, a decision made due to the sheer breadth of content the sequel is promising to bring.

Developer Yager promised “multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee,” a game that “adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.”

Coming from this, Yager said they’re “focusing purely on development” and that they will have “more info to share at a later stage.”

Once released, Dead Island 2 will launch across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
