Okay, we all know that it has been a very long time. However, there may be some hope for gamers. Dead Island 2 may have a release date and the game will be a cross-generation game. It means that the game will be released on PS4 and PS5, and for Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Cross-Gen means both generation of the consoles. The one in the market and the ones that are coming.
Where does this news come from?
Dambuster studios recently put out a job listing. That listing stated that they need an Art Director. If you need more proof then here it is. That job listing clearly said that the job will be for Dead Island 2. There are eight people required and it also mentions that the game is cross-gen.
However, we cannot say for sure whether this news is fully reliable. It is certainly possible that the studio made this listing some time ago.
When will Dead Island 2 release?
According to Amazon, the game does have a release date. It could possibly be 31st December 2020. However, there is no official confirmation for this news in any way. It is certainly possible that the game could take more time. Let’s say, one or two more years.
There is no need to lose hope this quickly. The release could be closer than we thing, we just don’t know yet.
What else do we know about the game?
Although, it is pretty easy to say that the game has been taking quite some time to be developed. It is possible that the studio is probably working on the release for this generation of consoles. After that, they would work on next gen. This means that there is a chance that the game will be released for PS5 and Xbox Series X later.
There is no confirmed release date or a new confirmed trailer or just a teaser. However, there is no need to lose hope for Dead Island 2. The cross-gen thing may be true because there are many upcoming games which will be cross-gen. For instance, Cyberpunk 2077 will be released for both generation of consoles. It will be released for new generation in 2021.
