Deep Silver revealed that they have selected Sumo Digital as the new developer of Dead Island 2. Deep Silver announced that they were no longer working with Yager as the developer a little while back leaving the game in a limbo temporarily. Sumo Digital is already hard at work developing the Dead Island sequel. There is no new release date for Dead Island 2 announced currently.
Koch Media CEO Dr. Klemens Kundratitz on why Sumo Digital is the right developer:
"Sumo showed so much understanding of the brand, had creative ideas and an excellent, vision that was aligned with our own."
"It just made perfect sense for us to move the project to them. 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."
Sumo Digital COO Paul Porter shared:
It’s an honour to be charged with the evolution of such an important franchise in Deep Silver’s catalogue. We’re looking forward to exceeding fan expectation with an ambitious design that we’re confident will take bone-crunching, visceral, zombie action to a whole new level.
