After a number of rumors suggesting that a sequel for the surprise hit, Dead Island, was not in development and perhaps a new developer might take on the project, we now hear that things have changed. Publisher Deep Silver is now confirming a new Dead Island sequel is in development, and it will be called Dead Island Riptide.
Techland will once again be spearheading the development, and the rumors that Yager would be heading development of the sequel have turned out to be false. What is more surprising is this is all we know, other than more details will follow later this summer.
Dead Island Riptide will be coming to consoles and the PC. It is unknown whether by the word ‘consoles’ they mean for the Wii U as well as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We will have to wait till later this summer to find out.
