Okay, so this one has quite the history. After making its debut all the way back in 2014, Dead Island 2 was shelved before its planned 2015 release date. Dead Island 2 also has a long history of development troubles with original studio Techland moving onto the excellent Dying Light, and then subsequent studio changes from Yager Development to Sumo Digital.
As part of a recent THQ Nordic financial report, CEO Lars Wingefors mentioned that the missing in action zombie title was still "being worked on" and that fans will find out more about the project sometime soon. With the game being announced during the early days of the current console life-cycle, there's a good chance that Dead Island 2 will finally see the light of day as a PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlet launch-window release. Or, it will end up being cancelled or rebooted for the fourth time.
Either way we'll probably see Techland's ambitious Dying Light 2 long before this. Even more strangely, exactly who's developing the game is a bit of a mystery. As per the last official word on the game from 2017 - it'll be Sumo Digital. Anyway, apparently Dead Island 2 is still happening so here's the trailer from E3 2014 which probably has no relationship to what the current version of the game looks like at all.
