At E3 this year, gamers were treated to the announcement of Dead Island 2 for new-gen systems. It appears that older systems haven’t totally been forgotten, as a new Dead Island game has just been announced for 360, PS3, and PC.
I dont know about this. What do you guys Think ?
Looks better than 1 and Riptide. It's sort of short on details though, so we'll see. I like that it's not MMO-like but a little bummed that it isn't co-op either.
I think I'll just wait for Dead Island 2. Looks fun, though.
Dev teams need to focus on this gen. Let last gen die.
Last Gen still has a large install base. It would be foolish for companies to outright abandon last Gen consoles this early into the generation.
So does the Wii. Does that mean they should make Wii games instead of Wii U games?
@dumahim - They aren't making last gen games instead of current gen games. They're making both.
The Wii may have sold a lot, but it's "active" user base is tiny. The active user base for PS3/360 is still significantly large. The new consoles haven't even been out a year, it's too early to cut last gen support. Personally, I'd say this coming holiday season should be the last for new last gen games to release.
Too many too quick? Dying Light, Dead island 2, Epidemic, now Escape (ios I thought at first). Be nice if it was a preorder bonus for Dying Light, which is the only one I'm really looking forward to.
Dying light is being published by warner brothers not deep silver.
Thought it was the same developing team?
Stealth in a zombie game? Hm... I'll see how this plays out. I did enjoy Lead and Gold a lot though.
Whats with all these dead island spin off's
Glad to see more cell shading games
Another sale item to wait for. 40 bucks for a game i have a feeling will end up in the bargin bin in so quickly. While i like he idea you watch its gonna bomb in sales from people expecting to much.
There are too many games I want already so waiting for sale as well. It could be a good game for later on but there are enough current gen/PC games to hold me over for a long while come Fall. This though could join the Borderlands Pre-Sequel for a later purchase however and they won't be alone on that particular list.
