Dead Island 2: Techland Would Take Hold Again if Deep Silver Asks

     Former Dead Island & Dead Island: Riptide developer Techland's producer Tymon Smektala says that if Deep Silver asked, Techland would once again take up the reigns on the Dead Island franchise for the sequel.  Since the creation of the first 2 games, Techland has moved on to create its own zombie IP with Dying Light.

    He states that Dead Island 2's developer Yager, who were responsible for Spec Ops: The Line, being removed from the project as "sad news."  Then went on to explain if Deep Silver would approach Techland, if they would return to develop Dead Island 2:
     "I personally would love to go back to Dead Island because I really love that game. I don't know if there is a developer [attached to Dead Island 2] at all."
     Smektala would return but also has one condition, it would have to be different from their current IP Dying Light.
     "As I said, I love Dead Island and I think there is a place for both franchises to strive in the market. As long as someone would be able to find something that would make them different, that would draw a clear line, 'Okay, here's Dead Island, here's Dying Light', and I think that's doable, then why not?"
    In the mean time Techland is considering a sequel to Dying Light while working on the first game's expansion titled "The Following."

    Now to see if Deep Silver will consider this possibility.  The last Dead Island game, Escape Dead Island, was a great idea but ultimately poor in execution, while Dead Island: Epidemic is a wonderful free-to-play MOBA type experience that I would highly recommend that Dead Island fans check out.
