Next Gen for next Dead Island

Written by David Stellmack



Announcement later this year


Dead Island developer Deep Silver claims that exciting news is coming for Dead Island fans later this year. While the developer isn’t getting into specifics, it would appear that the announcement will concern a new Dead Island title for the next generation of yet to be released consoles.

As the developer is currently focused on Dead Island: Riptide, Deep Silver is excited about the future of the franchise. The response to Dead Island is much better than could have been hoped for the title, and after such success it is only natural to see this franchise go to the next level.

While Deep Silver has not gotten into any specifics, like many developers it is expected that they will announce their next generation console offerings soon. The real question is how soon? From all of the talk, it seems as if Sony might be willing to let Microsoft show its hand first while Sony waits. Many analysts, however, seem to think this could be a mistake on Sony’s part to wait for Microsoft to make the first move.

Sources, however, are clinging to the belief that it could be as soon as March for the first announcement to come; and we continue to hear that this soft launch, followed by a hard launch ahead of E3, looks to be the strategy that both could end up following in the end.
