Deep Silver hints at next-gen Dead Island announcement this year

A next-generation version of Dead Island could be announced as early as this year, publisher Deep Silver has suggested. (Dead Island, Deep Silver, Next-Gen)

Makes sense. Here's hoping the gameplay is upgraded along with the graphics. I enjoyed Dead Island, but there were moments where the game simply missed the mark.

You mean like the save game corruption that was promised a fix but never materialised? The current way it is 'fixed' is a half arsed p*ss poor effort, it should have been eliminated ages ago.

EDIT - @matrixman92

The game can recover story missions up to a certain point, but you lose every single side mission progress as well as trophy progress (like I said, half arsed), when you load the game it should offer to recover it.

It needs a new save system in general, too. I want to save on the fly.

Riptide looks like an expansion back. This should've been their next move instead.

They pretty much said thats what it is. They don't consider it a sequel. Also they aren't charging the full price of 60USD for it.

Make it less tedious. I'm about 10 hours in, and all I've done is melee zombies that take 2-10 hits to kill (other than Thugs) and fetch quests. IDK, maybe there's more variety to come, but for TEN hours? Sheesh.

And better voice acting with less annoying, unclever stereotypes. "I am RUSHEEN. Bring me alke-hal. MY COUNTRY GREATEST"

Hopefully they improve on character and lip movement when SAM B got chatting he was miming away and it looked silly sometimes, also more weapons they may have missed out on dead island one but they were spot on with the coop and it was very fun.

I just want the new game to have a clear direction and tone. In the first game my character would say "I'm dying" in a dumb and laughable way after being hit by a zombie. Then a cut-scene would play that tried to be super serious.
