Dead Island 2
getting delayed might seem like news that could be posted on any given day over the past couple of years, but as per our recent hands-on with the game
, it is in the final stages of production. And shaping up to be something very cool. As per the announcement, the new date is April 28, 2023 - with the extra time being put toward that final stage of polishing.
"The irony of delaying Dead Island 2 is not lost on us," writes the announcement. "The delay is just 12 short weeks and development is on the final straight now. We're going to take the time we need to make sure we can launch a game we're proud to launch."
And with that a new trailer and look at gameplay is coming as part of a Dead Island 2 showcase on December 6.
