Is Dead Island 2 on Steam?

At the time of writing this, we can confirm that the game is not available on the popular storefront. This is due to publishers Deep Silver signing an exclusive deal with Epic Games. We’ve seen these types of agreements for console games, so when games do this on PC it comes as no surprise. However, it could show up on Steam in the future.
