It's not dead yet.
Remember when they showed that awesome Dead Island 2 trailer at E3 back in 2014? Well, here is some news just to make sure you haven't forgotten about the game just yet. A new job posting on the Dambuster Studios website suggests that the game is coming to both the current as well as the upcoming generation of consoles.
The City of Angels is now the city of the undead.
And so we need you to lead our art team as they create the sun soaked backdrop to a full scale zombie apocalypse set across the iconic Californian city for the next instalment in the world renowned Dead Island franchise.
This is a fantastic opportunity for you to further your career by leading the art direction on a ground-breaking title for current and future platforms at a genuinely progressive and forward thinking studio. Do you have proven experience in leading world class art teams to deliver AAA console focused titles? If so, then we have your next challenge waiting…
While it doesn't explicitly state that we will see Dead Island 2 release on current and next-gen consoles, it sounds very realistic with the releases of the next-gen consoles right around the corner. One thing is for sure, we at Aijou are (im)patiently awaiting the long-anticipated release of Dead Island 2. After that E3 trailer, we were sold right off the bat. Fingers crossed that we will see an update about the game soon!
