‘LittleBigPlanet 3’ Developer Takes Over ‘Dead Island 2’ Development

According to MCV UK, Sumo Digital, the developer of LittleBigPlanet 3, has taken over development on Dead Island 2. The game was originally being developed by Spec Ops: The Line developer Yager, until publisher Deep Silver decided to part ways with the studio in July, 2015.

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

More details will be revealed at a later stage.
