Dead Island 2 faces new difficulties, gets delayed to April 28, 2023

The development team behind Dead Island 2 has announced that they’re delaying the game for a few months. The release date will now be on April 28, 2023, instead of February 3rd, 2022. They say this because the game is not ready quite yet, and there are some last-minute features needed before launch.

The development of Deep Silver’s Dead Island 2 is obviously having some troubles. The announcement of the delay came through Dead Island’s official Twitter profile, where the Dambuster Studios explicitly claims its disappointment.

The irony of delaying Dead Island 2 is not lost on us and we are as disappointed as you undoubtedly are. We’re going to take the time we need to make sure we can launch a game we’re proud to launch. For those of you who’ve been waiting for years, thank you for hanging in there with us.

Furthermore, the developer wants to ensure a robust and enduring product. At least there’s something to be happy about, as Dambuster Studios claimed tha there will be an official gameplay trailer sharing a glimpse at Dead Island 2 on December 6.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
