Dead Island 2 has been delayed and will now release 2016, Yager Developments has announced.
The game was announced at E3 2014 and was scheduled to release on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One in spring this year.
Yager Developments announced via Twitter that the game is not yet ready to launch this year and has been delayed to 2016:
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.
Currently there is no concrete available release date as the developer wants to focus on the development processes:
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.
Add this to the list of Quantum Break, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and may be The Division which I presume will also get delayed to 2016.
