Dead Island picked up by Deep Silver?

Call of Juarez developer Techland’s zombie killer Dead Island may have been picked up by publisher Deep Silver.

First heard of back in 2007, the game was confirmed to have secured a publisher in July last year. Who that publisher is remains unknown officially, however German outlet PC Games has noticed that “” is redirecting to none other than Deep Silver’s website.

Adding more plausibility to the partnership is the fact that Deep Silver is also publishing Techland’s nail’d, as announced just earlier in the week.

Beyond a promising ‘apocalypse in paradise’ concept where anything and everything can be used as a weapon — from darts and letter openers to giant hammers — fresh information on Dead Island is, thanks to an imposed media silence, unfortunately nonexistent.
