I played a demo of this at Eurogamer last year. Plus I am a huge fan of the Dead Island games. This looks like a lot of fun (I wear my shirt all the time!) and although it had gone dark (heh) for a while, I'm glad dying light is being delayed to ensure a better experience. After the Fiascos that were the DI launches, they need to rebuild their rep.

I don't get why they made a new IP in the same genre as Dead Island just with some different features. Couldn't they have just made this Dead Island 3?

Its actually quite different. The free-run mechanic alone sets it apart by a long shot.

Plus, I think f they had done DI3, then people would be expecting the glitch-heavy launch those two had, whilst if its a new IP, some idiots will forget about DI and go for it.

And technically, Riptide wasn't DI2, Techland said it was a side-step, and that DI2 will be a seperate story and not a half-move like riptide was. (so, probably played ina more central-continent setting rather than an island).

I heard a rumour/theory that this was actually a new Dead Island but considering the whole glitch-heavy launch that the first two had, they decided to change the name to make people think it was a different game and give it a chance.
