[Update]: Nearly a decade after its original announcement, Dead Island 2 has now finally been unleashed.

Nearly a decade has gone by since Dead Island 2 was first announced, so I won't blame you if you completely gave up hope that the game would ever come out - I certainly did! However, in a refreshing twist, not only is Dead Island 2 still coming out, but it actually has a proper release date this time around - February 3rd, 2023!

What the new and improved version of Dead Island 2 looks like in action, that you can find out through the freshly posted gameplay trailer. Have a gander:

Judging by the short preview, it looks like Dead Island 2 will be following in the footsteps of its predecessor and mostly just goofing off with ridiculous weapons and situations. If that's truly the case, then I'm definitely on board with the idea as smashing zombies and flinging them off cliffs is always a nice bit of fun... provided a third of the game doesn't take place in a bloody sewer again!

That little repressed memory aside, you can learn more about Dead Island 2, as well as keep track of any future previews, over at the official website. Enjoy!
