Dambuster Studios Never Considered Remaking The Original Dead Island 2 Reveal Trailer
January 10, 2023
The original Dead Island 2 reveal trailer is now an iconic (perhaps infamous) moment in games. It was a great trailer, people were excited, and then fast forward nearly a decade later, and the game is still in development.
“It wasn’t really on our radar to redo the trailer,” Dead Island 2 game director David Stenton tells me. “I think it’s fun to sort of take that trailer – especially now the location of the trailer – and see how it applies to the tone of the Dead Island that we’re delivering. That trailer definitely delivered on the postcard LA and I think we deliver on postcard LA in a different way.”
“Not really,” Stenton says. “We started with a clean slate, absolutely with our own vision. We’re not looking too much at… what happened in the past or looking at too many other games out there. We’re just really focused on how do we want to make Dead Island 2 absolutely phenomenal, bring it up to date, and deliver a game that we think fans will really enjoy.”
