We were hoping that the Dead Island 2 game would be ready by last year but Deep Silver later announce that they had to push back the game. They did not say when the game will be ready but some people are saying that we might not even be getting it this year.
New reports are suggesting that the latest developer, Sumo Digital might have decided to do away with all the things that the last few developers have done and start from scratch. That means they are working on a new story as well as a new mechanics for the game.
With the game passing through so many hands, it made sense that Sumo Digital wants to clean it all up and start fresh but that also means that we might have to wait a little longer before we get to see the game.
