With Dead Island 2 the thing promised. We were going to have an ambitious sequel to the game of Techland, however, everything went wrong, little by little, and we did not have an approximate date for that title. of the game.
Now Dead Island 2 is in the hands of Sumo Digital although, since that announcement in 2016, we have not had any news about the current status of the project. That, however, could change in the short term if we ignore a series of new information that is emerging.
There were already some sources that pointed to the possibility that the title would end up appearing in E3 2019, but that seems to have won the whole thing now that the Xbox One online store allows you to book it. Except for a brief text that reads: “Welcome to Dead Island, where paradise mixes with hell”, there is a lot more information from a provisional date that calls for a launch in 2019.
This, of course, is not any kind of official confirmation, but seeing it in the Microsoft Store is a good clue that something is moving with its development. The game, in fact, was part of a recent THQ Nordic presentation, which allows us to think that Dead Island 2 is still alive.
