The game will arrive when it is ready. That is what we tell ourself whenever we think of the game. The fact is that we are lucky that Deep Silver has not yet decided to cancel the game even after it changed hands so many times.
We know that the fans are still waiting for the game to arrive. It was initially predicted that the game would be release this year but from the looks of it, 2016 is not going to be possible. We are close to the end of 2016 and so far, the only official announcement from the developers this year was that the game is still under development and that is it.
While nothing news seems to be coming on the side of Dead Island 2, those still playing Dead Island will be glad to know that the developers have just released a new patch update for the game.
