Publisher Deep Silver has removed the development team from Dead Island 2. In an email sent to press representatives, Deep Silver announced that Yager will no longer be working on the zombie survival sequel to Dead Island. Although no further details were given regarding the development change, the publisher promised to continue working on the game. While there haven’t been any stories of development issues, Dead Island 2 was delayed in April when the launch date was pushed back from Spring of this year to sometime in 2016. It was also a no-show at this year’s E3.
