Dead Island 2 Planned for Spring 2015

Publisher Deep Silver announced that Dead Island 2 will launch early next year during Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday. The follow-up to 2011’s Dead Island and 2013’s Dead Island Riptide is being developed by Yager Development. The Playstation 4 version of the game will feature exclusive content.

In a press release, Deep Silver described the title this way:

Several months after the events on Banoi, the United States military has put the Golden State under full quarantine. Now a restricted zone, California has become a bloody paradise for those who refuse to leave their homes and an action-packed playground for renegades who seek adventure, glory and a fresh start. Combining the classic Dead Island elements of immersive close combat, action and role-playing, Dead Island 2 features crazy, never-before-seen handcrafted weapons and over-the-top characters in taking players from the iconic Golden Gate to the celebrated beachfront boardwalk of southern California’’s Venice Beach.
