Dead Island 2 isn’t dead.
THQ Nordic assured investors during its financial presentation yesterday Dead Island 2 was still in development.
Company CEO Lars Wingefors told investors it was still in active development, but wouldn’t comment further. You can listen to his comments on the game at the 19 minute mark.
Dead Island 2 is one of 80 games in the works with the publisher – 48 of which have been announced.
After a delay into 2016, publisher Deep Silver made the decision to “part ways” with Yager. THQ Nordic, Deep Silver’s parent company, handed development over to LittleBigPlanet 3 and Sonic Racing dev Sumo Digital.
Yager filed for insolvency soon after over the game being pulled.
Then, all went quite with many believing the game had been cancelled. THQ assured folks continuously, even 11 months back, Dead Island 2 was still in the works.
Dead Island was originally developed by TechLand, which went its own way when its idea for zombie games evolved into the Dying Light series.
