Dead Island 2 Release Date and More Get Leaked
A reliable source of information, Twitter user Wario64 has recently shared a rather interesting leak today about a game sequel that everyone thought was dead. They revealed the Dead Island 2 release date along with the story details and screenshots. Their source of the leak? Shockingly, it was Amazon and the listing is still there but minus the story details. The images are there too.
The leak reveals that Dead Island 2 is possibly launching early next year, February 3, 2023. It will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5.
Amazon Shares Story Details and Features

A deadly virus is spreading across Los Angeles, California, turning its inhabitants into ravenous zombies. The city is in quarantine and the military have retreated. Bitten, infected, but more than just immune, you learn to harness the zombie inside.

As you uncover the truth behind the outbreak you’ll discover who – or what – you are. Survive, evolve, save the world – just another day in LA! The much-loved zombie saga is back with a unique formula of horror, dark humor and over the top zombie-slaying, spanning an epic pulp adventure.

Pricing and Possibility of Official Announcement
Before the removal of the listing details on Amazon, it was also listed that the game was now up for preorder on the online shopping website. It was priced at $69.99, but that could change later on when the official announcement is up, which should be anytime soon. I mean, the leak has box art and clearly, the screenshots do not look fake, so Deep Silver will definitely make it official after this blunder. Or they could just ignore this leak and continue on.
Dead Island 2 will possibly launch on February 3, 2023. It will be available on PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S. PC was not mentioned, but it could be announced as well.
