Lords of the Fallen 2’s new dev is starting from scratch after taking over development from The Surge’s Deck 13.
New-York based Defiant Studios is starting over with Lords of the Fallen 2, scrapping any pre-production work on the game made by series creator Deck 13. The game officially moved to Defiant earlier this year.
“It’s really a reset, it’s a fresh start. It’s a new engine – Unreal 4 – and a new team” David Grijns, Defiant Studios managing director, told Eurogamer. “A team which does not have a long and illustrious background in action RPG development, but we actually see it as a strength.”
