Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 Is Releasing Early

HELL-A good!

After years of delays, developer changes, global pandemics and whatever else could go wrong in game development (probably), Dead Island 2 has finally gone gold.

That means the game is essentially “finished” barring any last-minute changes being rolled into a day one update, ready to be pressed to discs and beamed up through the heavens to be stored on servers for digital storefronts everywhere.

On top of that bit of good news though, the folks at Deep Silver Dambuster Studios have announced that they’re dropping the game early. They’ve seemingly had enough of pushing the game back bit by bit, and instead they’re pulling it forward a week from its original release date of April 28th to now April 21st. You’ll be able to get a start on cracking some zombie skulls with all manner of makeshift melee weaponry (an activity we found very fun when we played it) sooner than expected.

You asked for it, you got it. Dead Island 2 went gold and it’s coming out a week early.  See you in HELL-A on April 21, 2023.

Dead Island 2 is set to launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on its new release date of April 21st. The cheapest copy is $74.90 for the regular edition and $144 for the Collector’s Edition.
