Dead Island fans patiently waiting for the arrival of the second game in the series aptly named Dead Island 2, will be disappointed to learn that the games developer Techland has today announced its delay revealing that the game will not be launching until sometime in 2016.
Techland was expected to launch Dead Island 2 during the spring of this year, but has today released a statement explaining why it has taken the decision to delay the game’s launch into next year.
When Dead Island 2 does finally launch it will be available to play on both next-generation games consoles as well as PC systems. Techland explained in a statement today :
“We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.
“And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015. We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn’t reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016.
“Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage. We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result. -Team Dead Island 2”
