In a reddit Ask Me Almost Anything with Deep Silver creative director Guido Eickmeyer, question after question wondered about the state of Dead Island. After the recent announcement of Dead Island: Epidemic, a MOBA of all things, it seems fans are itching to hear about a possible return to the main series. Heh, "possible." As if this isn't totally happening.

"For now, I can only ask you to wait a bit further, then some really nice things will be revealed about the future of Dead Island," Eickmeyer commented. He noted that he "would not expect the series to stop at this point," and suggested that "there will be always a strong link to 'islands', because this is just part of [the series'] DNA."

The widely popular DayZ was also brought up, prompting Eickmeyer to talk in more hypotheticals about Dead Island's future. "I would say that exploration in an open-world game is key to being fun. Size is not the only answer here as not every gamer would like to have a DayZ-kind of experience, but you want to feel being part of a world, not a linear corridor of events."

He noted that it was a source of inspiration and a great game, but that he doesn't "see Dead Island moving into such a super-harcore direction. For future titles, you will find many elements being inspired from this title. Not confirming anything ;) but I would say the survival motive is something in the focus for our upcoming DI games."

Explode zombie heads into raspberry jam with Dead Island 2

This game is a bloody messy. In a good way. I've never been too keen on Dead Island, but maybe with Spec Ops developer Yager on Dead Island 2 (PC, PS4, Xbox One), this will make for a good time. Maybe some white ph...more

There's going to be a Dead Island movie (for real this time)

A few years ago, Lionsgate picked up the film rights to Dead Island but now Deep Silver is moving forward with Occupant Entertainment to "package, produce, and finance" an adaptation. It's unclear which direction the movie wi...more

You could theoretically make Deep Silver package a real zombie with Dead Island 2 Collector's Edition

Remember the last time we talked about a Dead Island collector's edition and it was a disembodied female torso? I don't think Deep Silver wants to go that route this time, so they're turning to the community to find out what ...more
