Sumo Digital Takes Over Development for Dead Island 2

Deep Silver has announced a new developer to take over work on Dead Island 2.

British developer Sumo Digital will handle developing the game now, news confirmed after the publisher had parted ways with previous developer Yager.

Koch Media’s CEO (Deep Silver’s parent company) Klemens Kundraditz talked up the new developments:

“Sumo showed so much understanding of the brand, had creative ideas and an excellent vision that was aligned with our own.”

Once released, Dead Island 2 will launch across Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
