Rumours are buzzing around following a report by GamesIndustry International, that Dead Island 2 is in development, and that it's not being handled by Techland.
Techland of course developed the original Dead Island, but the game was plagued with bugs and issues. Despite this, the game went on to be a massive title for the publisher and talk of a sequel followed shortly after. Techland also registered a trademark for Dead World.
The GamesIndustry International report stated that Techland had been removed as the developed for the sequel, with Yager being brought on board instead. Yager are currently working on Spec Ops: The Line for 2K Games. This has since been denied by Deep Silver.
If we hear any more about a sequel for Dead Island, we'll let you know.
