The long-awaited sequel to Dead Island, Dead Island 2, is still underway, the game’s publisher has confirmed.

When asked about the sequel that was officially announced back in 2014, the game’s official Twitter account replied by stating that the game is still in development, and more about the game will be revealed when publisher Deep Silver and developer Sumo Digital are ready to do so.

“What's going on is that it's in development and we won't be showing more until we're ready”, the Dead Island 2 Twitter account tweeted. “Appreciate the wait is painful, but Dead Island 2 is still coming.”

The publisher later added, “Thanks! We think you'll be happy with what we're creating.”

A the moment of writing, it’s unsure whether Dead Island 2 will receive additional DLC as the team is currently focused on developing the main game.

Fans also asked whether mobile tower-defense game ‘Dead Island: Survivors’ had any impact on the sequel’s development, but this doesn’t appear to be the case as it’s being developed by a different developer.

Dead Island 2 was slated for a release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in 2015, but developer Yager was dropped as developer in July of 2015. In 2016, British development studio Sumo Digital announced to have taken over the game’s development.

Dead Island 2 picks up the Dead Island and Escape Dead Island storyline several months after the events on the Banoi islands. The United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine which, for some, is a dream come true with a promise of a fresh start. California's newfound bloody paradise is an action-packed playground featuring the acclaimed, seamless multiplayer for up to eight players who cooperate, compete or simply coexist in a truly social, new-gen multiplayer experience.
