The news comes via the official Dead Island Twitter account, which recently posted a blurb for the mobile spinoff Dead Island: Survivors recently launching.
A fan asked what was going on with Dead Island 2, so their social media gave an unexpected update:
“What’s going on is that it’s in development and we won’t be showing more until we’re ready. Appreciate the wait is painful, but Dead Island 2 is still coming.”
The last we heard about the game was almost a year ago, where Deep Silver basically confirmed Sumo Digital was still working on the game.
The game also had a MOBA spinoff titled Dead Island: Epidemic, which saw a beta run for about a year prior to it being shut down in 2015.
Once released, Dead Island 2 will launch across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
