Five years after the initial announcement and yet they still keep saying, ‘Stay tuned.’

Stay tuned for Dead Island 2!

THQ Nordic is pretty busy with all the 80 games they have in development, Dead Island 2 including. It has been half a decade since it was announced and has had several development setbacks to the point that many thought it was being cancelled. But voila! It’s is apparently not.

According to the THQ Nordic financial report call that Dead Island 2 is still on the works. In the same report, they confirmed that it’s coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

We had the first look of its gameplay in Gamescon 2014. Check out the preview below.


Dead Island 2 was originally announced with Spec Ops: The Line under Yager studio but by the next year, 2015, publisher Deep Silver parted ways with Yager. In 2016, it was announced that the game was passed to Sumo Digital. By 2018, Deep Silver was acquired by THQ Nordic and just this week, the developer made their statement of its revival along with the Dead Island 2’s logo.

There has been no other information given aside from that. Years back it was said that it’s going to be melee combat mixed with RPG game elements. Deep Silver said that it’s going to feature some never-before-seen handcrafted weapons. It has also been described as a game with the new-gen multiplayer experience. Players will be taken to the infamous Golden Gate Bridge of San Francisco to Venice Beach.

However, we are yet to see the changes that have happened to Dead Island 2 in the course of its development. There’s been no news whether we’ll be seeing Dead Island 2 in E3 2019 next month. That’s it folks, Dead Island 2 is not dead – just on the works.
