The Dead Island 2 team announced a delay to 2016 on Twitter today.  The game was originally slated for release this spring.  The full announcement is as follows:

We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island – multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee – and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that.

And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in Spring 2015.

We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn’t reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016.

Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage.

We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result.-Team Dead Island 2

A fourth Five Nights at Freddy's game titled "The Final Chapter" has been announced, and slated for release this Halloween.  I have my doubts that this'll truly be the final chapter, but I don't know for how many more games after that Freddy's body can hang on.  He's looking as loosely stitched together as this franchise.

Viscious Cycle has announced a new game based on the popular animated series 'Adventure Time.' The game is described as "an action-oriented twist on the graphic adventure genre..." And it will be focus on Finn and Jake solving mathematical mysteries in the land of Ooo. 

Lets just hope Viscious Cycle does justice to 'Adventure Time,' because the last game was just snoozeville.
