Dead Island: Riptide Will Not be Released in Germany

According to an interview with Dead Island: Riptide‘s creative producer Sebastian Reichert on PCGamesN, there are no plans to publish the game in Germany. The decision is due to the country’s restrictions against the representation of violence towards human-like characters and corpses. Dead Island: Riptide is not the first zombie themed game which was barred from Germany. Other titles include Dead Rising, Dead Rising 2, and Left 4 Dead 2.
