Deep Silver Dambuster Studios has acquired the Dead Island franchise and is currently leading the development of the expected Dead Island 2, according to what was announced by THQ Nordic in its latest financial report.
When Dead Island 2 was first announced on June 2014, it was under development at Yager Development. However, the study later abandoned the project in July 2015 and in March 2016 Sumo Digital was confirmed as a new developer.
With today’s announcement, Dambuster Studios has become the third studio to take over the project.
Further details have not been announced.
