Dead Island: Riptide not a remake
Dead Island: Riptide will not be a remake of the original game, Deep Silver’s marketing and PR manager, Aubrey Norris has confirmed.
Many fans of the franchise were expecting Riptide to be a simple remake due to online retailers listing the game for $49.99.
Aubrey Norris assured Ripten that the lower price was associated with the ending life cycle for this generation’s consoles and had nothing to do with the game being a remake of Dead Island.
”That’s not a placeholder that’s the real price! It’s the end of a console cycle – we think this price makes a lot more sense given that.”
We’re looking forward to the extensive reveal this summer and we’ll keep you informed of all the latest Riptide details.
