Yager has delayed Dead Island 2 into 2016 to ensure the sequel is taken “to the next level.”
“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 statement from Yager reads.
“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.
“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.”
Dead Island 2 was previously delayed to September. It’s set to appear on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.
