Techland Doesn’t Actually Want To Develop Dead Island 2
‘At the moment, we are focusing on Dying Light.’
Comments made by a producer from Techland earlier this week got misconstrued so that people began to think that they might actually be looking into developing the sequel to the game that put them on the map in the first place.
However, today, Tymon Smektala, who worked as a producer on the original Dead Island, has issued a statement regarding those comments that he made.
“After reading through some of the VideoGamer coverage of Dying Light: The Following produced after an interview at Gamescom, I’d like to again clarify that all of the statements I made about Dead Island 2 were my personal opinions only and in no way represent the views of the studio,” said Smektala.
“I am a huge fan of the original Dead Island as a gamer and would love the franchise to thrive, but any decisions regarding possible Techland’s involvement in its franchise are not mine to make, and are never as easy as just “asking”. At the moment I’m focusing on Dying Light: The Following hoping to deliver a great expansion to all the fans of the game.”
Currently, Techland is working on an expansion pack for Dying Light. Dead Island remains firmly with Deep Silver.
