Some Lords of the Fallen 2 developers fired, scope reduced
Lords of the Fallen 2 has been in development since 2014, just shortly after the release of the first game. Of course, it was supposed to be bigger, badder, and bolder.
However, CI Games’ Tomasz Gop is going back on that claim. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Gop said has been let go.
“I was let go because of a reduction in team, in scope, in budget, in business approach,” he said.
“Almost two years I’ve been working on the sequel and I have not seen it leave the concept/vision stage. I was working on something I was really 100 percent into and we were not producing the game.”
CI Games came out and said that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 was too ambitious for them. Gop seems to think the case is the same with LOTF 2.
“There came a time when Sniper [Ghost Warrior 3] was the most important thing for CI, the next big hit,” he continued. “It also might have been the reason why Lords was not progressing as fast. Of course it’s not uncommon knowledge that [SGW3] didn’t go exactly according to plan, especially if it goes for sales. And here we are.”
