Dead Island 2 developers decided to abandon the release of the game on the previous generation consoles


Twitter user under a pseudonym MauroNL In the list of vacancies of the British Dambuster Studios, I found a hint of a reduction in the list of target platforms for the long-suffering zombie action game Dead Island 2.

We will remind, initially Dead Island 2 was positioned as a project for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but in April 2020, on the Dambuster Studios website, they found indirect confirmation that the game will drop into new consoles.

Recently, as noted by MauroNL, from the vacancies on the official website of Dambuster Studios, for some unknown reason, any mention of the eighth generation consoles has disappeared.

“You will be working on an award-winning AAA project for next generation consoles and PCs. Your responsibilities will include planning and releasing features and roadmaps, and striving for quality within the constraints you need. “, – reads the description of the position of the senior producer.

Directly in vacancies with “Next generation consoles and PCs” Dead Island is not mentioned, however, mentions of the series can be found in other announcements (for example, Senior Environment Artist), and other projects in development at Dambuster Studios have not previously been reported.

In addition, MauroNL noted that Dambuster Studios needed programmers with knowledge of DirectX 12 (or Vulkan) and DirectX Raytracing (DXR) hardware acceleration.

Dead Island 2 was presented in June 2014 and since then has managed to change several development studios – Dambuster Studios joined the project in August 2019.
