Dead island 2 is Undead

The first dead island came out way back in 2011 to fairly good but mixed reviews. It mixed zombie survival and RPG genres together. It's one those games I never got around to playing but always wanted to. Last word on development of Dead Island 2 was last year and it looked like it was going to slip into development hell after releasing Riptide. RIP.

But it looks like we're going to some Dead Island 2 anyways. Thanks to eurogamer.net for getting the info. They asked publisher Deep Silver if it was still on development and they got a pretty encouraging response.

"Dead Island 2 is in development at Sumo Digital, and we are excited by the progress the team are making with Deep Silver's most successful IP. When we are ready to share more information, we will."

It looks like I'm going to have to go find a copy of the first game so I can jump on the bandwagon when some actual news of the 2nd game comes out (or better yet, get the definitive edition). Who knows we might even get something about it at e3. I’m glad to hear it’s still in the works. I always find myself a little disheartened when something that is unique and generally considered good is possibly  getting tanked. Maybe I’m just a big softy. 

The mix of RPG and survival wasn't perfect but it always intrigued me and apparently it was one those games that kind hooked you at some point. I'm reminded of Borderlands, that game hooked me in a very similar manner. Hopefully we'll hear some more solid information about Dead Island 2 soon.

The last time we got anything meaty about Dead Island 2 was this hilarious trailer they aired at E3 a few years ago. 

Did any of you play the first game or it’s expansion? Did you like it? Are you excited for the second one?
