Dead Island 2 launches on April 21st, 2023. After many delays, it is expected that this date stays final. It’s been over a decade since the first Dead Island, so it’s understandable that people can’t wait to play the sequel.

It will release for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC via the Epic Game Store. You can pre-order the game right now if you feel so inclined, but it’s always best to wait and see with these kinds of things, trust us.

“HELL-A is waiting to welcome you, survive the infected – by any means necessary. Hack, punch, shoot, and eviscerate your way through a gore-drenched Los Angeles, use your deadly force at will, and earn your stripes as a zombie Slayer on February 3, 2023 (moved to April 21st, 2023). The proof is in the (pretty disgusting) pudding in this awesome footage taken from gameplay that Dead Island 2 is here to deliver you the ultimate zombie slaying experience.”
