Dead Island: Riptide is not a remake, confirms Deep Silver

Upcoming zombie actioner Dead Island: Riptide will be a full-on fresh experience and not a remake of the original, publisher Deep Silver has said.

The confirmation comes following concerns as to whether or not the title would be a new game or something similar to Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

However, Aubrey Norris, Manager of Marketing and Public Relations at Deep Silver, commented: “It is a new game. Not a remake.”

Norris also touched on the $49.99 pre-order price tag spotted on various retailers, explaining: “it’s the end of a console cycle – we think this price makes a lot more sense given that.”

Expect more information on Dead Island: Riptide to drop later this summer.
