Yager has announced that Dead Island 2 has been delayed to 2016.

The game was originally set to release on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC this spring but this has now been pushed back to an unannounced date in 2016:

"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."

They should have done this from the start, all devs should be making sure their games work right out the gate and look/perform as good as possible rather than giving a date and then always going back on it.

I didn't know it was coming out in 2015.

That's fine. The first Dead Island was good, but it was plagued with glitches and bugs.
