Dead Island still coming
Techland, who have just released the critically acclaimed Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood have released a statement this morning regarding the development of their other property, Dead Island. After hearing about this game ages ago and then it all going quiet I’d assumed that the game had been condemned to development hell but not according to this statement by Techland’s Blazej Krakowiak:
“All we are allowed to say is that the game is in development and doing great and that all future updates regarding the game will come directly from the publisher”
For those of you that don’t already know, Dead Island is an open world first person shooter where you can use anything you can pick up as a weapon to protect yourself from the armies of the living dead. It’s sounds like a pretty interesting prospect although I hope it’s more than an open world Left 4 Dead which is what is currently looks like. The game is going to be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC although a release date has yet to be set, I don’t expect to be bashing zombies round the head in this game until at least 2012.
