Oh my... Seriously? Of all the genres of games that Dead Island could possibly have come back as, a MOBA is literally the last thing I would ever come up with. EVER...

This game will obviously be a cheap cash in on the now popular genre, but I can't see how in any way the Dead Island franchise could possibly make the transition to MOBA. It'd probably be more like smite then Dota, but who knows?

What would be the character classes? Zombie 1, Zombie 2, Man with Cricket bat, Woman with sword, People with guns? What would be the active and passive abilities, the ultimates, the thing the two sides are protecting? What would the creeps be? Last time I checked, zombies don't have loyalties to any specific team.

This is single-handedly the dumbest idea I've heard in a long time.

"I can only recommend giving dead island epidemic a try". Souns a tad insecure about the game, there.

I don't even play those kinds of games but, like MJTH pointed out, I just don't get how Dead Island can be turned into a (good) MOBA.
