Dambuster Studios Delays Dead Island 2 Launch for 12 More Weeks

Everyone is familiar with Dead Island 2’s development delays. The game has been doing the rounds of different studios for almost a decade. Techland passed on the project to Yager Development to focus on Dying Light. However, Dead Island 2 was then given to Sumo Digital, before finally settling with Dambuster Studios, the internal development team of Deep Silver.

Dead Island 2 has been delayed again for 12 more weeks while the development team works on some final changes. The game will now be launched on April 28, 2023.

The studio stated that while it is disappointed with the hold up, fans can rest assured since the team are “on the final straight now.”

The hype around Dead Island 2 is surprising since the first part was a mediocre zombie game at best. Its hysterical teaser was a break from the emotional and intense trailer of Dead Island. This gives fans hope that the sequel will be different, and in a good way.

“It’s not what we wanted to do. We wanted to do it right – announce the game in style, put a release date on it, launch on time and celebrate a job well done.”

The trailer for Dead Island 2 looks promising; it has become one of the most anticipated games of recent times. Sadly, we will have to wait a couple of months more, which is still better than the decade-long wait after the game was announced.

Dead Island 2 launches on April 28, 2023, for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
