I don't believe this is actually "Pilgrim 2". I read an interview with Terry Hayes and will post his answer here:

"EC: Can you give us a heads up about your next book?"

"TH: Because I had no guarantees or expectations for I am Pilgrim to be successful I decided to write a stand-alone novel, The Year of the Locust. It should be out in eighteen months and is centered on cloaking technology, where objects appear invisible even though they are really there. There is a lot of research being done on this by the military. I would describe it as “Planet of The Apes” meets “Lost,” or “Star-Trek” like.

After this book the second book of the Pilgrim series will be out. In this book Pilgrim establishes a relationship. The third book has someone attacking him. He must pretend to be dead, even to the one he is in love with, to find out who killed him. I promise the readers that with these two books they will learn everything about Pilgrim they were afraid to ask. If the series is successful I might continue the adventures with future books."(less)

I have seen May, 2016 and May 2018. You can go to the website for the author and read the beginning of the book and get a synopsis. Pilgrim is not a character in this book, although in an interview, the author said he plans future Pilgrim novels. My thoughts( although not through anything I have read) the publisher never thought I am Pilgrim would be so popular, but , because of its success, is delaying his second book so he can write a sequel to I am Pilgrim to be published next to capitalize on the success of I am Pilgrim.(less)

I Am Pilgrim was my favourite read this year (so far...but it most likely will be). So am I anticipating this release? YES.

Update Jan 15 2018: Soooo. 3 years later and where are we at with this book? Well according to Amazon it will be coming out June 1st, 2020. Bit of a wait. But according to my eBook hold at the library it will be coming out on May 1st, 2018. I'm more inclined to believe that date. We shall wait and see!

After just finishing I am Pilgrim I looked for other works of Terry Hayes. Imagine my distress to find that The Year of the Locust is probably only going to be available in 2018!!!.

To make it worse Terry made available the "Sampler". How cruel is that.

I enjoyed Pilgrim immensely, based on the sampler, which is a teaser, and promises another exciting story, I hope i am still around for the release. Derek Hall (78).

Many thanks Terry, I am most definitely a major FAN.
