Lords of the Fall 2, the sequel to the 2014 title Lords of the Fall, has gotten its developer dropped due to creative differences. In a polish press release translated by Eurogamer, publisher CI Games had the following to say:

The termination of the agreement was submitted due to inadequate execution by Defiant [of] a key work stage (milestone no. 11), a so-called vertical slice. The quality of the work was lower than expected by the company, as precisely described in the agreement, despite three calls to improve the quality of this stage of work.

Developer Defiant Studios seems quite pissed about all of this, as founder of the studio David Grijns said the following to Eurogamer:

We categorically disagree with the portrayal of Defiant Studios made by CI Games

The team that was working on CI Games’ project was comprised of exceedingly talented developers whose work we fully stand behind. Our team knows how to build quality games as is evident by their key roles in Just Cause 3, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 5, Devil May Cry (DmC) and many other top tier projects.

Looks like we will have to wait another 5+ years before we see this game come to light, as now the search for a new developer is on.
