If you were looking forward to Techland’s upcoming sequel to Dead Island, it looks like you’ll be waiting even longer. According to our sources, the game has been delayed until until 2016. Deep Silver (the publisher), released a statement on the whole matter that reads
We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.
And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015.
We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn’t reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016.
Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage.
We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result.

I personally don’t care. Dying light was fun, but for the most part, I’ve been sick of Zombie games. I can wait. How about you? Does this affect your 2015 gaming plans? Let us know in the comments below.
