Fan of the Dead Island franchise? Of course you are! Otherwise you wouldn't be here, reading this. Well good news! Dead Island 2 is in development by Yager (developers of Spec Ops: The Line), bringing the zombie hunting to next-generation platforms. We don't have any information other than that, though--but we have plenty of speculation!
The trailer featured a weird art style--not unlike a Valve game. Sure, it could just be the art style of the video (the Dead Island franchise has a long history of misleading trailers, after all), but we're guessing it might extend into the game. With Dying Light on the way, there's a chance that a cartoony style might be the way the developer wants to separate the two franchises.
