As the team continues to work on a sequel, it has been reported that many important Disco Elysium developers have 'involuntarily' left Studio ZA/UM.
As it works on its sequel, Disco Elysium creator ZA/UM "involuntarily" dismisses many important developers from the studio. With the release of Disco Elysium in 2019, ZA/UM, an independent game developer based across several studios in the UK and Europe, stunned the market.
The sequel to Disco Elysium is currently in development. Still, as interest in it grows, it may be made by a different set of leaders than in the first game.
Martin Luiga provides information about the recently reported changes at ZA/UM. He explains that their official title is Secretary of the ZA/UM cultural association. This cultural organization,
which can be thought of as the group of artists from which the concept for Disco Elysium originated, is separate from ZA/UM the business. The ZA/UM cultural association has been disbanded, according to Luiga,
