dead island 2

Dead Island 2's latest developer, Dambuster Studios, has announced a short delay to the upcoming open world zombie romp. The game is now landing on April 28th, 2023, pushed back slightly from its previous February 3rd release date.

The team says that it's taking the extra development time to ship a game it'll be "proud to launch", even though it acknowledges the "irony" of further delaying Dead Island 2.

Ahead of the game's new April launch date, Dambuster will deliver a Dead Island Showcase on December 6th. Expect "exciting new trailers and gameplay" next month when the showcase takes place on both Twitch and YouTube.
