Who do you voodoo, bitch!?

Feeling a little overly stressed at work lately? If you think you might need a vacation, you're in luck because the tropical Isle of Banoi is calling your name. I hear it's great this time of year and the beaches are really something to experience. If you can manage to evade the hundreds of zombies that plague the sands, you may even be able to dip your feet in the water or feel the warm sand between your toes.

Dead Island developer 'Deep Silver' has finally announced that they are, in fact, working on a sequel to their unique zombie survival franchise. 'Dead Island: Riptide' is currently in full development at Techland for consoles and PCs. This has squashed previous word of a sequel titled 'Dead World' that was rumored after Deep Silver filed a trademark for 'Dead World' in the U.S. mere months after the release of Dead Island. While Deep Silver has chosen to keep almost all information on Dead Island: Riptide a secret, they have promised an 'extensive reveal' later in the summer.

The press release:
