Did Dead Island just quietly turn into an annualized franchise? The original launched in 2011, and sequel Riptide followed two years later in 2013. With Dead Island 2 announced at E3 for a 2015 reveal, it looked like that trend would continue, but developer Deep Silver just made another surprise announcement. A new game entitled Escape Dead Island launches this fall with a reasonable price tag of $39.99.
Why the discount? While Dead Island 2 is hitting the current gen systems. Escape Dead Island is slated for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, along with PC as well. Escape Dead Island utilizes a new, more stylized look, and takes place after the first game, but before Dead Island 2. Look above to catch the reveal trailer.
