Dead Island 2 Is In Trouble

Dead Island seems to be in a rough place at the moment with recent replacing series creator Techland for Spec Ops: The Line developer YAGER. It seems like an odd decision especially since the recent gameplay footage was well received, the recent announcement doesn’t mention any plans for moving forward.

As of right now it seems to be that the sequel is in a state of limbo.

“With Dead Island 2, Deep Silver has always been dedicated to delivering the sequel that Dead Island fans deserve. After careful consideration, today we announce the decision to part ways with development partner YAGER. We will continue working towards bringing our vision of Dead Island 2 to life, and we will share further information at a later stage.” No further information was given on the decision to part with YAGER and what this could mean for Dead Island 2.

The original Dead Island and its follow-up Dead Island: Riptide, were created by a polish developer Techland and that developer went on to work with Warner Bros on a similar zombie-based game called Dying Light. This is likely the cause of its recent delay in 2016.

It’s disappointing to see this game delayed and the occurring problems between Deep Silver and YAGER, hopefully this won’t have an effect on the final product.

Thank you polygon for providing us with this information
