Dead Island producer clarifies comments about Dead Island 2 switching studios
Comments made earlier by original Dead Island developer Techland regarding its desire to work on a sequel only reflected the personal opinions of one producer.
Tymon Smektala, who worked as a producer on the original Dead Island has issued a statement today regarding comments he he made last week about the desire to pick up the Dead Island 2 mantle from Yager.
“After reading through some of the VideoGamer coverage of Dying Light: The Following produced after an interview at Gamescom, I’d like to again clarify that all of the statements I made about Dead Island 2 were my personal opinions only and in no way represent the views of the studio.
“I am a huge fan of the original Dead Island as a gamer and would love the franchise to thrive, but any decisions regarding possible Techland’s involvement in its franchise are not mine to make, and are never as easy as just “asking”. At the moment I’m focusing on Dying Light: The Following hoping to deliver a great expansion to all the fans of the game.”
