Dead Island 2 Not Dead

Dead Island 2 is still in the works, as noted in a new tweet from the Twitter account for the zombie sequel (thanks USgamer). Word is: "Dead Island 2 is still in development and we will share more on this at a later stage." This would probably feel like bigger news if not for the fact that the last we heard about this game was a similar proof of life statement over two years ago. Dead Island 2 was originally expected in 2015, but that plan ran ashore when developer YAGER was dropped from the project. The most recent word is that Sumo Digital had assumed developer duties, but that's about all we know about where this stands.
