Dead Island 2 could be released later this year, according to a journalist

A reporter has claimed that Dead Island 2 may soon be revealed and released later this year.

Speaking on his Sacred Symbols podcast (transcribed by VGC), veteran journalist Colin Moriarty said: “I talked about this a few weeks ago on the show, but Dead Island 2 seems to be revealed again.”

He continued, “”I heard from a source I trust that the game could be fully revealed this summer and released maybe soon after, maybe September or October at the earliest. “

Moriarty is the latest reporter to cite sources telling them Dead Island 2 is on the way. Industry insider Tom Henderson also claimed in February that Dead Island 2 is still in active development at Dambuster Studios and could be revealed again this year.

During a Q&A session where the game was mentioned, Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors replied, “I can’t talk about Dead Island 2 because it’s not advertised as such. by the editor.

“But we just talked about [that] we have an unannounced AAA title… which you think is Dead Island 2, so it’s hard for me to comment further on that.

“But I’m excited about the unannounced titles,” he added with a laugh.

If the game were to appear soon, it could be in THQ Nordic’s recently announced digital storefront. The company plans to introduce “several new games, expanding the company’s portfolio into new genres with both licensed and original gaming experiences.”

The show will also feature updates on THQ Nordic games currently in development, such as Outcast 2: A New Beginning and Jagged Alliance 3. It’s likely that Saints Row will also be featured as it’s slated for release soon after the event. .
