The Dead Island series has seen a rough few years, and after deciding that Techland weren’t the right studio to develop the sequel – leading them to create Dying Light – Yager took the reins of the island infested zombie game and were set to release Dead Island 2.

After one or two delays, Deep Silver has now decided that Yager is no longer the right studio for the job and the two have parted company.

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

After the success of Dying Light, I bet Deep Silver are kicking themselves for not sticking with the Polish developer!

I've been gaming for longer than I care to remember and spent four years writing for another XCN website leading a 10 strong team. Now I'm in charge of TiX alongside Dave Moran – I hope you enjoy what we do!
