A single trailer, featuring an undead girl thrown out of a window by her own father, whipped the media into a turbulent frenzy. As a result, Dead Island was a hit—half a year before its launch day. Two months after its successful release, Dead Island's developer—Techland—has filed a trademark for Dead World in the U.S. While there is no announcement from the Poland-based company, one could speculate that Dead World is a bigger, badder sequel to tropically restricted original. The title could be simply indicating that the zombie apocalypse has spread to the mainland or it could signal that the franchise is moving to a large scale multiplayer experience. Does anyone else smell the rancid stink of a zombie-filled MMO?
