Following the news that Deck13, the original developers of Lords of the Fallen, would not be developing Lords of the Fallen 2, publisher and developer CI Games have announced that the executive producer has left the team.
In an interview with Eurogamer Poland, CI Games stated that creative differences lead to the departure of Tomasz Gop, the executive producer for Lords of the Fallen 2. Changing the creative direction for the game, CI Games aims to reach a wider audience for Lords of the Fallen 2 by creating a “richer story” and adding a “robust fighting system.”
We’re grateful for his input, but we have different visions for further development of the series and Tomasz will not be a part of CI Games’ progress.
We want to reach a wider audience for this game. That’s why we’re building a richer story. We’re aware that these aspects could’ve been better in first game, so the story is a big point of the sequel, along with robust fighting system. We want to bring something fresh to RPG games.
The action RPG Lords of the Fallen 2 is set for a 2017 release date.
