Deep Silver has once again postponed Dead Island 2, with the game set to release on April 28 next year.
As announced on Dead Island’s Twitter (below), the delay from February 3rd is at least a 12-week delay compared to several years since Dead Island 2’s initial release window in Spring 2015. I’m sorry.
No specific reason for the delay was given, so developer Dambuster Studios simply needed more time, but said they understood the irony of delaying Dead Island 2 again. increase.

“The irony of Dead Island 2’s postponement hasn’t been lost on us, and we’re definitely as disappointed as you are,” it said in a joint statement with publisher Deep Silver. “The delay is only 12 weeks and development is currently in the final stages.
“We will take the time we need to release a game that we can confidently release. Thank you to everyone who has waited so many years to stay with us.”
A new trailer and gameplay video will be released during the Dead Island 2 showcase on December 6th. This is set to be the first proper look game fans have seen since it was relaunched in August 2022 after years of troubled development.
Dead Island 2 was unveiled at E3 2014, but quickly went quiet before “mutual differences” separated previous developer Yager from Deep Silver. It then moved to Sumo Digital and in 2019 moved to its (presumably) final home of Dambuster Studios.
