Dead Island 2 Resumes Development

It's great news for Zombie bashing fans and fans of the Dead Island game.


Publisher Deep Silver have announced Sumo Digital have now taken over development of Dead Island 2, formally developed by Yager Productions.

Deep Silver reportedly parted ways with Yager due to a 'difference in vision' for the game.


The UK based studio Sumo Digital are responsible for Little Big Planet 3 and Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed.


"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."
said Klemens Krudratitz, chief executive of Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media.


Paul Porter, chief operating officer of Sumo Digital goes on to say:

"It's an honor to be charged with the evolution of such an important franchise...
We're looking forward to exceeding fan expectation with an ambitious design that we're confident will take bone crushing visceral zombie action to a whole new level."


Further news will be announced later, but Deep Silver are super excited about progress they are making with Sumo.


Let's be fair though, it probably wont be for a long while before we hear more on this!
