Dead Island 2 is, ironically, still alive according to its publisher THQ Nordic.
During the publisher’s quarterly financial report, THQ Nordic revealed that Dead Island 2 is “being worked on.” Worryingly, though, no other information was elucidated, with THQ Nordic merely telling viewers to “stay tuned.”
Back in late December, a former developer implied that the project had switched studios to Dambusters. Before then, little to no information came out about the project, with Deep Silver delivering nothing but mixed messages to the fan base.
While THQ Nordic’s comment is a reason to be positive about the title, the project has done little to emancipate itself from its “development hell” connotations. Hopefully, if and when the game does release, it will be more The Last Guardian than Duke Nukem Forever.
Thanks, Is The Message.
