Is Dead Island 2 dead?

Curiouser and curiouser

Dead Island 2’s steam page has gone missing, sparking rumours, once again, the game is… well, dead.

Spotted by NeoGAFfer DeathSparks, the page was removed recently, along with the store descriptors and accompanying tags. 

Here’s a list of what was disappeared:

As we creep ever closer to E3, there’s every chance the page has been yanked in preparation for a new reveal, a new direction… or it’s a quiet cancellation. Only time will tell.

Development of Dead Island 2 has not run smooth. Publisher Deep Silver severed links with the original development team at Yager after citing it did not wish to make “compromises” with the sequel. LittleBigPlanet developer Sumo Digital took over development as original studio, Yager, filed for insolvency.
