Fired Dead Island 2 devs leave Yager, start indie studio

Plus, hints at super secret project

Three Yager (Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2) developers have left the company to go indie as inbetweengames. This is a few months after publisher Deep Silver dropped Yager as the developer on Dead Island 2, just a few months after delaying the game.

Currently the trio is bringing its Ludum Dare 33 game, The Mammoth: A Cave Painting, from PC and Mac to iOS and Android (still free).

Otherwise, they are working on a “super secret game” that can’t be talked about yet, but is planned for fall 2016 release (and should be playable in April of 2016). My expert sleuthing into the aforelinked not-so-secret project page notes, “Absolutely no mention of cross temporal communication, Berlin nightlife or assassinations.” Cool.
