The news of the showcase comes on the heels of the announcement that Dead Island 2 has been pushed back to April 2023, having originally been pencilled in for release in February. Expect plenty of new footage at the event, including a trailer and plenty of blood-drenched gameplay.
Dead Island 2 is currently in development for PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, with a release date scheduled for April 28, 2023.
Dambuster Studios previously revealed that it plans to make Dead Island 2 the ‘goriest game out there,’ and confirmed that while degradable weapons are featured in the game, they won’t be too strict with the feature.
Dead Island 2 has endured a tumultuous and lengthy development cycle that dates back to 2014, at which point it was in the works at Yager. Production then shifted to SackBoy: A Big Adventure creator Sumo Digital before transitioning to Dambuster Studios.
