There Is No Peace for Dead Island 2: The Developers Change Again

Dead Island 2 Has Not Been Canceled, Thq Nordic's Confirmation

In the past few hours, THQ Nordic has acquired new studies and published a document summarizing the financial results of the last period, which also offers an update on Dead Island 2, a title in development from the now distant 2014, and that seems to have suffered a further delay.

The publisher has announced a new change at the helm of the project, which will now be developed by Dambuster Studios, owned by Deep Silver. This is the third study that takes charge of the work on the video game, after Yager Development was the head of operations at the time of the announcement, which was replaced by Sumo Digital in March 2016.

Unfortunately, it is not clear if the works have remained still in the various changes of leadership, and if the new developers have had to start over, but the fact is that Dead Island 2 will surely suffer a new delay.

The game does not appear in the THQ Nordic line up for Gamescom, but the publisher may decide to take advantage of the opportunity to release some small details or even a mini teaser, to reassure fans that the game is still alive. We’ll see.

What do you think? How long are you waiting for the 2011 sequel?
