Deep Silver announced that they are developing a sequel to last years Dead Island. Dead Island Riptide will be the next installment in the open world zombie killing franchise. Not much is known about the sequel other than it’s currently being developed for consoles and PC, more details will be revealed sometime soon.
If you recall, the first Dead Island had one of the most epic trailers ever. I know some people felt the game itself didn’t live up to the hype but I enjoyed the game a lot. But then again I love all things zombies except for that song by the Cranberries.
Hit the break for the very short press release from Deep Silver, lovers of the undead and stockholders of Hanes…
