Dead Island: Riptide Release Date and Special Edition Possibly Leaked By Retailer

Dead Island: Riptide is the 2013 sequel to the 2011 surprise hit, Dead Island, from Deep Silver. While we know very little about the sequel (except that it will be $49.99 and we may see a collector’s edition), an apparent leak from EB Games seems to show that it will be releasing on April 23rd, 2013:

That image comes directly from their homepage and when you click on it, the product page still says that it has a filler date of December 31st, 2013.

The picture also shows that there will be a pre-order special edition which comes with an alternate character skin, pack of weapon mods, and digital strategy map.

Because the picture looks so official, this is likely an accidental leak by the retailer, meaning that we should be hearing word from Deep Silver confirming this date very soon.

Does an April release date have you excited? Or will you wait to make sure it isn’t riddled with bugs? Let us know in the comments below.
