Dead Island 2 announced [Update]

Update: A release window has been given, with Dead Island 2 slated to hit PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in Spring 2015.

Original story: At Sony's E3 press conference, the company debuted Deep Silver and Yager's Dead Island 2. To accompany the announcement, of course, they showed off a bloody, gory, kind of funny trailer. Prior installments of the series had been developed by Techland, who is currently working on Dying Light.

The trailer below shows a whole lot of sunshine and that's because this new game takes survivors away from the island of Banoi and puts them in sunny California. The Golden State is now under quarantine, meaning survivors must fend for themselves in recognizable real-world locations.

The whole trailer can be seen below.
