As announced yesterday the horrified storm has arrived. Following the announcement of the Zombie Bait Edition of Dead Island Riptide for the UK a torrent of negative feedback was received by the publisher. After weighing fan response, Deep Silver has apologized for the limited edition and its “gruesome statue of a zombie torso”.
“We sincerely regret this choice”, Deep Silver announced via Twitter. “For now, we want to reiterate to the community, fans and industry how deeply sorry we are, and that we are committed to making sure this will never happen again”.
Deep Silver’s plans for the incriminated action figure remain unclear at present. In its statement the company made no mention of plans to alter or remove any contents from the package.
