It’s a game many thought was cancelled, with delays and different information being relayed around the internet. But now Deep Silver have announced that Sumo Digital, the developers behind games like Little Big Planet and the Forza Horizon series among many others, are taking over development of the highly-anticipated addition to the Dead Island series, Dead Island 2.
The game was originally being developed by Spec Ops the Line developers, Yager but Deep Silver pulled them off the game stating “Yager and Deep Silver’s respective visions of the project fell out of alignment, which led to the decision that has been made.”
Speaking to MCV, Koch Media CEO Dr Klemens Kundratitz had this to say about the new partnership

We will reveal more details at a later stage, but for now I’d like to say that we are obviously super excited about the progress that we are making with them.”[/box]
