Today, Deep Silver has released a statement on the status of Dead Island 2, which was delayed until 2016. It seems though that with this announcement, it might be much longer of a wait before we see the game in its final form.
Deep Silver takes the first ZOMBA (Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena) to the next level: Zombie and MOBA fans can now sign up for the Closed Beta of Dead Island: Epidemic on the freshly re-launched website: www.playdie.net and be part of the final stages of development. Dead Island: Epidemic will pit 3 teams of players against each other in a desperate fight for survival.

The story picks up immediately where the original ended. Discussion and exposition regarding the virus and those immune to it (the playable characters) emerges some hostile emotion towards the militaristic and the PMC named Serpo, control of your well-being.

Deep Silver today announced the upcoming release of the Game of the Year Edition for the award-winning game Dead Island.
Originally released in September of 2011, Dead Island was named Gamecritics.com’s 2011 Game of the Year and received multiple Editors’ Choice awards. Dead Island quickly became a fan favorite, topping the charts of #1 best-selling games worldwide during its launch and going on to delight over 3 million zombie lovers across the globe. This new edition gives players who are yet to experience the beautiful terror of Dead Island a version packed with content: including the Bloodbath Arena mode, the Ryder White’s Campaign single-player story arc and the blueprint for the highly-coveted Ripper weapon mod.
“There’s nothing more satisfying than gracefully tossing a normal, inconspicuous looking kitchen knife at some foul creature and bringing complete decapitation to their world,” mused Aubrey Norris, Deep Silver’s Manager of Suspicious Radio Voices, while wearing a smooth velvet smoking jacket and pouring a glass of some questionable-looking red substance on the rocks. “By unleashing – I mean, releasing– the Dead Island Game of the Year Edition upon the world, we feel that we are doing our part to empower the world with the ultimate survival tutorial. At Deep Silver, ladies and gentlemen, We. Make. SURVIVORS. *thunderclap*”
