Embracer Group has indicated in its latest financial report that the long-delayed Dead Island 2 could finally hit stores by March 2023.
During a Q&A presentation on earnings, the host touched on that Dead Island 2 is still speculating before unofficially revealing that they believe Embracer Group’s next fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2023, will come out.
It is very clear [still alive], and I expect the release this fiscal year, or sorry next fiscal year I should say. So, is that reasonable and what can we expect from a title that has been in development for about 10 years?
In response, Lars Wingefors, CEO of Embracer Group said:
I can’t talk about Dead Island 2 because it hasn’t been announced as such by the publisher. But we just talked about it [that] we have one unannounced AAA title… which you think is Dead Island 2, so it’s hard for me to go into that. But I’m excited about unannounced titles.

Dead Island 2 was announced in 2014 and has been going through a tumultuous development cycle with a number of different companies at the helm. It is now believed to be in the works at Deep Silver’s Dambuster Studio.
It was confirmed last week that Dead Island 2 was still in development, so hopefully it won’t be long before we get concrete information about the project.
