Dying Light has nothing to do with this game, Dying light 2 is made by and published by Techland, Dead island 2 started with Yager, then moved to sumo digital, now probably given to free radical published under Deep Silver.

Yeah the Dying light team made the first Dead Island game, but became their own thing after the first one.

Deep Silver is the publisher so it's a game that's going to get buried.

Now would probably be a good time to release it as it could fill the void left by the crappy Dead Rising 4 (which will likely not get a sequel at this point. But honestly this game is probably vaporware at this point, and even if it does reappear it likely has lost what made it even remotely interesting when it was announced

I'm happy I got this game, the story is on the weak side but the gameplay, the semi-open world and the DLC's are great. Got way more hours out of this than I ever thought I would and playing with friends is stupid fun.
