After it was revealed that Yager has been dropped from Dead Island 2 development, managing director of the studio Timo Ullman spoke to Gameindustry.biz stating difference in vision from the studio and publisher resulted in the situation.
Here’s the statement:
“Our team is made of the best creative minds and tech specialists, who all share a common identity,” he said. “The team worked with enthusiasm to take Dead Island 2 to a new level of quality. However, Yager and Deep Silver’s respective visions of the project fell out of alignment, which led to the decision that has been made.”
