There is really not a whole lot of news about Dead Island 2 right now. Whatever details we have right now were released months ago and since then, the developers have been keeping a very tight lid on the game.
We know for sure that the game is still being developed. After the game was removed from Steam, fans were worried that the developers might have killed off the game but Deep Silver stepped out to reassure their fans that the game was still in development.
No release date or windows were given and while some people still seems to believe that the game might actually arrive this year, we think that it is highly unlikely that the game will actually make it before 2016 ends.
All we can do now is wait. Hopefully, the developers will release more details about the upcoming Dead Island 2 game soon.
