Deep Silver Says Dead Island 2 Is Not A Thing
Last week rumours surfaced that Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager Development would be developing Dead Island 2, the successor to last year’s zombie RPG which made headlines for all the wrong reasons.
That rumour has now been squashed by the publisher.
“We are neither working with Yager on Dead Island 2 nor do we have any contractual agreement with Yager about any project at this point,” said Deep Silver development director Guideo Eickmeyer.
“Yager and Deep Silver do have a very close relationship, based on personal and professional connections between the parties. There is a legitimate chance that we will – at some point – work together on a title – and I would not even exclude the possibility that this could be something within the Dead Island franchise,” he went on to say. Very teasingly.
Clarifying, he added: “We have neither something in place or in discussion between the parties that would explain such a news, nor do we have Dead Island 2 in concept or production with external partners.”
Of course Techland, the Polish-situated developer of the first game, was previously spotted filing a trademark for ‘Dead World’ in the US, so this isn’t the first time the possibility of a Dead Island sequel has been hinted at.
The question is; would you want one?
