Dead Island 2 Changes Developers Once Again

Recommended Posts

Sumo Digital, best known for Team Sonic Racing and work on Crackdown 3, took over development in 2016. Today, THQ Nordic revealed in a financial report that a new driver is in the seat once more, with Dambuster Studios (Homefront: The Revolution) have taken over development:
