Experts are inclined to two variants of development of events.
Dead Island 2 had the unenviable fate: Deep Silver and Yager Productions announced the game at E3 2014, but a year later the publisher took it away from developers and handed over to another Studio Sumo Digital. However, it is likely that the new company may also not allow the zombie shooter in a sense.
NeoGAF users noticed that Dead Island 2 has disappeared from the range of Steam: for example, if you try to go to the game page through your wish list, then you will find yourself at the main store.
The inhabitants of the forum is useful to check the status of the action on the SteamDB website, which tracks changes to all applications in the service Valve. There it was discovered the most important thing: Dead Island 2 was removed from Steam. The developers erased the title, genre, and category, and a unique identifier assigned to the game, and is now listed as “Unknown application”.
Internet experts are inclined to two options: either Dead Island 2 revoked, or Deep Silver and Sumo Digital are preparing a global reset, which for some reason requires a completely new page in Steam.
