E3 2012: Deep Silver announces Dead Island Riptide

Publisher will reveal zombie sequel later this summer

Following the success of Dead Island, Deep Silver will stage a full reveal of the sequel Dead Island Riptide later this summer

Deep Silver has announced a new upcoming title in its zombie horror franchise, called Dead Island Riptide.

The title is in development by Techland for ‘consoles’ (though there doesn’t appear to be any indication whether that means this generation or the next) and PC.

A full reveal is planned for later this summer.

The original Dead Island was a mixed bag in terms of reviews, but performed well on the shelves.
