Back in June of 2011 at E3, OnLive announced a list of games that would be coming to the service. On it included a game that many OnLive users have been eagerly awaiting ever since. That game was Dead Island. Since then the release date has been pushed back on several occasions.
Many OnLive users had expected that Dead Island would be released on the service at the same time it was released on other platforms–September 6, 2011. That day came and went, and the game was never released. On September 7, OnLiveFans reported that the game would be delayed until mid to late October, after talking with developers at Deep Silver, Inc.
