CI Games announced that the creative course of Lords of the Fallen 2 may be changing direction due to the departure executive producer Tomasz Gop who revealed it through Facebook.
CI Games organized a news conference (via Eurogamer) explaining that Gop’s departure was a result of different “visions for further development of the series” which hints that Lords of the Fallen 2 may take a different approach than the original Lords of the Fallen and introduce new concepts.
They also commented on building the game’s story and that it’s “a big point of the sequel.”.
“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.”
Gop replied to Eurogamer’s emails and seemed upset with CI Games’ that they revealed the reasons of their misunderstanding and he kinda challenged them to make Lords of the Fallen 2 a better game without him.
“I want to respect CI’s will to keep that [the reasons for their parting] between me and them. I wanted all the best for Lords but there’s going to be someone else leading the project and we’ll see if it will make it more successful than I could.”
Lords of the Fallen 2 is planned to launch in 2017.
