The underscoring message of the tweet is obviously that they see that the wait to get more information isn’t pleasant, but the game is still in evolution.
With that said, there’s not any surprise that a number of fans have moderate concerns within the game. The game was originally announced at E3 2014along with the Spec Ops: The Line programmers Yager Development in the helm Rather than the first Dead Island developers, Techland. Despite a Spring 2015 release date, the game was postponed into 2016 mentioning reverses on development objectives.
Delays aren’t nearly the sign of inferior development health they were, therefore matters didn’t strike fans as odd till publisher Deep Silver dropped Yager Development from the job altogether. While little was understood about the specific issues, Yager later went on record citing creative differences with the publisher over Dead Island 2. Following the departure, Sumo Digital — the creators of LittleBigPlanet 3 along with Crackdown 3 — have been drafted to complete the project. However, little news of the game has prevailed since afterward.
Dead Island 2 will allegedly be arriving at PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime later on, however we’ll need to wait around for more news to know when. If you would like to encourage the development or liked the ancient trailers, then feel free to put your money down on a pre owned through Amazon.
