The first sniff of a Dead Island sequel may have wafted our way, with news that Polish developer Techland recently trademarked a new game name, Dead World. That's like an Island but bigger!
No official announcement of a sequel has surfaced, but Dead Island is said to have performed admirably at retail, which certainly ought to encourage one. Dead World would certainly be a fitting name for a larger, more ambitious sequel, although I hope Techland can keep a lid on the bugs if it's going to expand the scope of the game.
In any case, we'll have to sit tight and see what happens. I'm looking forward to seeing what gets announced!
