Just yesterday, we reported that Yager (Spec Ops) is no longer involved in the development of Dead Island 2 in a press release sent out by Deep Silver.

Now, it’s Yager’s turn to say something about its departure. Here’s what Yager Managing Director Timo Ullmann had to say:

Our team is made of the best creative minds and tech specialists, who all share a common identity…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.

Ullmann also revealed that Yager has another game or two in development aside from the announced Dreadnought (being published by Grey Box) stating:

All I can reveal at this point is that Gamescom will be awesome.

Which studio do you think is the best fit to replace Yager for Dead Island 2? What do you make of the entire scenario so far?
