After Deep Silver terminated its relationship with Yager, the creators of Spec Ops: The Line – the upcoming Dead Island 2 has been missing in action. Well it looks like UK studio, Sumo Digital will be leading the charge with the upcoming sequel announced on MCV.

“Sumo showed so much understanding of the brand, had creative ideas and an excellent, vision that was aligned with our own,” Koch Media CEO Dr Klemens Kundratitz told MCV.

“It just made perfect sense for us to move the project to them. We will reveal more details at a later stage, but for now I’d like to say that we are obviously super excited about the progress that we are making with them.”

Sumo Digital has worked on several Microsoft titles in the past as well as on the upcoming Crackdown 3.
