Eurogamer Czech has reported that Dead Island 2 is being delayed and is now planned for a Fall 2015 release. The game was originally meant to hit stores this Autumn, however Eurogamer’s sources claimed that the game won’t be released until September of this year.
@VG_Dave been told from our internal sources few weeks ago that DI2 is now set for September date.

Deep Silver has not debunked this story yet, so this delay sounds plausible. Do note that Homefront: The Revolution has already been pushed back to 2016, so this delay may very well be intentional.
After all, this will give YAGER enough time to further polish its title, and will replace Homefront: The Revolution that was originally planned for a Fall 2015 release.
Stay tuned for more!
