New listings for the game on Amazon reveal versions for Xbox One / Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. We've also got four new screenshots, which, well, look a lot like what you'd expect from Dead Island. And we've got some brand new box art as well.
Meanwhile, while they've since been removed, Gematsu reports that a release date and full description of the game were originally shown on the Amazon listings. The release date is set for 3rd February 2023, while the description confirms that the game is set in Los Angeles, and while see players taking on he role of a character who is not only immune to the zombie infection, but can utilise that new found zombie power.
“The much-loved zombie saga is back with a unique formula of horror, dark humor and over the top zombie-slaying, spanning an epic pulp adventure,” reads the official description.
“Dead Island 2 is a thrilling first-person action RPG that takes players across a brand-new playground. Stylish, vibrant and flooded with zombie infection, explore iconic, gore-drenched Los Angeles. Meet larger-than-life characters. Slay countless foes in exquisitely bloody detail. And evolve to become the ultimate Zombie Slayer. See you in HELL-A!”
Dead Island 2 was first announced way back at E3 2014, but hit multiple delays, before developer Yager was pulled from the project. Shortly after, British studio Sumo Digital took over development duties, and it seem the project is finally close to release, with this leaked date aligning with the Q4 2022 release window teased by Embracer Group.
