Yager No Longer Developing Dead Island 2

Whoa.

We’ve suspected Dead Island 2 is in trouble for a while now, ever since it was quietly pushed into 2016, and we stopped hearing, well, anything about it, and it appears we weren’t off the mark- where there is smoke, there is fire, after all, and today, Dead Island series publisher Deep Silver announced that Yager, who had been taken on board to develop the game, have now been dropped from the project.

“With Dead Island 2, Deep Silver has always been dedicated to delivering the sequel that Dead Island fans deserve,” Deep Silver said. “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.”

Things must have been in pretty bad shape for the developer to be dropped entirely, so late into the project. I wonder what happened in this game’s development.

As of right now, Dead Island 2 is slated to come out some time in 2016 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
