Death Island 2-3

Alcatraz Island is a small island 1.25 miles (2.01 km) offshore from San Francisco, California, United States. The island was developed in the mid-19th century with facilities for a lighthouse, a military fortification, and a military prison. In 1934, the island was converted into a federal prison, Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary. The strong currents around the island and cold water temperatures made escape nearly impossible, and the prison became one of the most notorious in American history. The prison closed in 1963, and the island is now a major tourist attraction.

In 2015, Alcatraz was the site of a viral outbreak orchestrated by Dylan Blake and María Gómez with the assistance of DARPA Bio-drone lead researcher Antonio Taylor after he is kidnapped by Dylan's hired armed group. Dylan sets up his center of operations at the former armored base when Alcatraz was still a military outpost, using the cached of weapons he acquired through CIA agent turned arms dealer Glenn Arias. In base, Taylor is forced to create Mosquito Drones which can carried doses of t-virus, able to be cultivated through Licker Larva and controlled from afar. Additionally, Dylan genetically modifies and injects t-virus into a great white shark called Megalodon which swims around the vicinity of the island, killing creatures surrounding the area. After preparing his creation, Dylan releases drones onto tourists visiting the island in order to test out Taylor's inventions as well as luring Leon Scott Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield and Jill Valentine after he acquires information related to their activities since Raccoon City through hacking into U.S Department of Defense server.

Successfully luring them to the island, Dylan initiates an outbreak in Alcatraz in which he unleashes all the drones into tourists of their group, quickly turning them to Zombies. At the same time, Taylor had made a backdoor code in their programs in case of a betrayal ever occurred and escape their captivity, posing as a tourist among the group. Sometime after, the Redfield siblings are captured by Dylan and Gómez after being infected with the virus, leaving them in a slow agonizing state with Taylor back in their custody. Meanwhile, Valentine and Kennedy discovers the armory base and their laboratory where Dylan beckons them to come forward in the prison compound. After arriving, Kennedy is left incapacitated after being injected with the virus by the drone with Dylan disposing of Taylor in the process, forcing Valentine on the run and Taylor to hand Claire Redfield of the program's backdoor code. At the same time, Rebecca Chambers and SWAT troops dispatched towards the island after communication is lost with the group with the latter falls to the Megalodon, forcing Chambers to arrive alone on the island. Chambers finds the weaken trio and cures them of their afflictions and pursues after Dylan and Gómez. Kennedy successfully eliminates Gómez and reconvenes with the group where they faced against Dylon, a monstrous entity hybrid of Dylan Blake and Megalodon after fusing together with t-virus assistance.[2]

With Kennedy, Chambers and the Redfield siblings efforts, Valentine is able to put an end to the creature and the culprits behind the outbreak. Outside the island, the five are picked up by reinforcement helicopters which arrive to evacuate survivors and clear out remaining BOWs on the island.[3]
