Dead Island 2’s original director is working on Horizon Zero Dawn

Dead Island 2’s original director Bernd Diemer has joined Guerrilla Games to work on the studio’s new open-world RPG Horizon Zero Dawn.

Diemer confirmed the move on his Twitter, but didn’t explain just what his role would be on Horizon’s development team.

Prior to Guerrilla, Diemer worked at YAGER on Dead Island 2 before the studio’s relationship with publisher Deep Silver ended, and before that he worked at Crytek.

Horizon Zero Dawn was unveiled at Sony’s E3 press conference earlier this year, and we came away impressed with what we saw.
