Dead Island had shipped over 2 million copies last we checked, and that's usually good enough to warrant a sequel.
But could developer Techland be working on a follow-up effort already? Or is this something entirely different and unexpected? According to Siliconera , the Poland-based design studio has patented a trademark for "Dead World" in the US.
Dead Island was – obviously – set on an island but it seems the zombie outbreak may spread across the ocean. Then again, we really don't know what this trademark is for; it could even be for a film adaptation. Or maybe Techland is jumping into digital creation and are planning to bring the sequel or a spin-off to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
For our part, we thought Dead Island was a decent game with a high fun factor. There were a few issues with the gameplay but nothing that couldn't be fixed in a sequel. The question is, would you buy that sequel…?
