The development of Dead Island 2 continues, with a shift to internal production according to the publisher THQ Nordic during their earnings call.
I wonder if they'll keep the humor and the less serious tone the trailer from 2014 showed. We already have Dying Light 2 for that more gritty serious zombie experience with a bigger focus story. And since there is no new Dead Rising on the horizon, Dead Island 2 should really aim for the more fun side in killing zombies.
I agree Dying Light is a far better version of Dead Island I'm not sure why they are still bothering with this IP.
Almost reaching Duke Nuke'em Forever levels of development hell.
Why don't they just call it Duke Nukem Island and get it over with?
Man, it will be a miracle if this game came out good. This game has disaster written all over it. I wonder why they're struggling with development for this game. It doesn't look too ambitious or anything.
This game now is on its THIRD developer since 2014. Any hope for this game releasing anytime soon or being a good game has gone out the window. If they haven't scrapped the game or moved it over to PS5/Scorpio they're making a mistake.
I have respect for the current developer on the project (Homefront: The Revolution is actually playable now and is quite good). But I feel their being forced the push out a project no one wants and will have another game thats a failure.
