Deep Silver announced via a tweet on July 14th that Yager, the developer best known for Spec Ops: The Line, has been taken off of the Dead Island 2 project. It hasn’t been said why, but fans shouldn’t expect Dead Island 2 for quite another while.
According to the tweet, Deep Silver state “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.”
The last we saw of Dead Island 2 was E3 2014, where we got a short gameplay clip as well as that awesome jogging scene which did wonders for the artist featured in the trailer, Pigeon John with The Bomb. Nothing has been said yet about the fate of Yager, but here’s hoping those guys end up on another project soon, and stay in business.
