Deep Silver Drops Yager From Dead Island 2 Development

Deep Silver has announced they’re removing developer Yager (Spec Ops: The Line) from working on Dead Island 2.

The news comes a few months after the game was delayed into next year over quality and feature creep concerns.

Deep Silver provided the following statement:

“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.”

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