Good lord, not another Dead Island

It's impressive how much Deep Silver has milked the Dead Island name over the past five years. You know, considering a trailer, of all things, is the zombie franchise's claim to fame. So it comes as no surprise that the publisher is looking...

Three Yager (Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2) developers have left the company to go indie as inbetweengames. This is a few months after publisher Deep Silver dropped Yager as the developer on Dead Island 2, just a few months after delay...

Techland says it'd take over Dead Island 2 if asked

The status of Dead Island 2 is up in the air after publisher Deep Silver took developer Yager off the project last month. Chances are that it's not dead given that Deep Silver has already sunk money into the project and it's one of the...

Fired Dead Island 2 team files for insolvency

Yager (Spec Ops: The Line) was recently fired from developing Dead Island 2 by publisher Deep Silver as the companies' "respective visions of the project fell out of alignment." Last week, July 22, Yager Productions filed for insolvency. Ya...

Deep Silver drops Dead Island 2 developer Yager

Deep Silver has announced it is parting ways with Dead Island 2 developer Yager (Spec Ops: The Line). Just a few months ago, Deep Silver delayed the game into 2016 over quality concerns. The publisher made this announcement with a brief sta...

Deep Silver delays Dead Island 2

Dead Island 2 was supposed to release this spring, but that's no longer in the cards, as Deep Silver has announced the open-world zombie game has been delayed until 2016. The publisher and development team at Spec Ops: The Line studio ...

 
 
Escape Dead Island review photo

Review: Escape Dead Island

In my years as a freelancer and staffer at various videogame outlets, I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing a ton of great games. In fact, this year I had the privilege of reviewing pretty much every “AAA” game that hit store...

Escape Escape Dead Island's time loop on November 18

Do you like piña coladas and getting caught in zombie-infested time loops? Are you not into yoga, but into land masses that are surrounded by water on all sides? Deep Silver took out a personal ad. It wants you to meet at ...

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 phosphorus, eh? W...

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 will go in, thoug...

 
 
 
Dead Island preview photo

Escape Dead Island is a single-player 'survival mystery'

The next Dead Island game isn't Dead Island 2. Of course, Dead Island: Riptide already showed the series' disregard for numeration. Counting the early access MOBA, Dead Island 2 should be Dead Island 5. But Dead Island i...

Dead Island Epidemic is a 'ZOMBA,' not a MOBA, get it right

Dead Island Epidemic's four-minute gameplay video tries really hard to be hardcore, but I cringed at the way the announcer said the title. It wasn't good. With that said, it looks like it could be fun. Obviously this is a MOBA, but the buz...

 
 
E3 trailers photo

These were the best trailers of E3 2014

That's another E3 in the books. After months of speculation as to what gaming's most important convention might hold, four quick days clear everything up. In a way, it almost feels criminally short given everything that's on display at the ...

Techland: We didn't want Dying Light to be Dead Island 2

Ever since Techland's Dying Light was announced, it's drawn comparisons to Dead Island -- the studio's previous title. It's easy to see how many would come to that quick conclusion with it being an open-world zombie game...

Video: Dead Island 2 E3 2014 impressions

Huh. I missed that Spec Ops: The Line studio Yager is handling development on Dead Island 2. That knowledge combined with the excellent CG trailer has me mildly interested. Here's Max sharing his thoughts after seeing an early demo at E3. ...
