Dead Island 2 Pushed Back To 2016

The team behind Dead Island 2 confirmed earlier today via Twitter that the sequel would be pushed back from its original spring 2015 release date to sometime in 2016. According to the Tweet, the team felt that the game hadn’t quite meet the goals they had set for themselves and that they will spend the near future on the game’s development. The post goes on to read that while the team thinks that fans will be disappointed by the wait, they also feel that they can make Dead Island 2 a better game with the extra development time. The new team for Dead Island 2, Yager (developer of Spec Ops: The Line), was brought in after Techland’s departure from the franchise.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
