Dead Nation was Housemarque’s zombie shooter that came to life on the PS3 back in 2010. If you own the console there’s a good chance you’ve played it; It was offered as one of the free games that Sony gave away after the infamous PSN security breach of 2011. Chances are also pretty good you enjoyed it. As far as top down shooters go it was a great game, with plenty of weapons and zombie action. Dead Nation is firmly is the “good game” camp, and we’d never say no to a sequel to a good game.
Luckily for us, Housemarque looks poised to deliver. They just released a video, a special message, for Dead Nation fans that heavily implies that Dead Nation 2 is on the way. They’ve wrapped it in some nice footage of their upcoming shooter, the PS4 launch game Resogun. A platform for Dead Nation 2 isn’t mentioned, but it’s incredibly likely it’ll be coming to the Playstation 4 and likely the Vita as well (especially since they are currently porting the first Dead Nation to the handheld). Is it too much to ask for Cross Buy support as well so we can run the game on our PS4 and Vita with only one purchase? Based on the past, this is all but guaranteed.
