Dead Island 2 has seen its fair share of development troubles, but things are now coming to a temporary close, as publisher Deep Silver has announced that it's cutting ties with German developer Yager Development. No specific reasons were given, but it's easy to infer that the title's quality was a big problem.

"With Dead Island 2, Deep Silver has always been dedicated to delivering the sequel that Dead Island fans deserve," the firm told the press. "After careful consideration, today we announce the decision to part ways with development partner Yager. We will continue working towards bringing our vision of Dead Island 2 to life, and we will share further information at a later stage."

Well, that's that. Our bet: don't expect an announcement anytime soon. Honestly, we're kind of wondering how the game will even do at this point, with so many delays and now a studio swap. Oh, who are we kidding? Just go play Dying Light.
