Life Is Strange
A new Life Is Strange title has just been confirmed to be on the way but no details on if it is a sequel to Life Is Strange or just in the same setting
Life Is Strange was a sleeper hit for me and it makes me sad to say that I have still not played all the way through the whole game as of yet. Not from lack of want to see what DONTNOD crafted for us but, ironically, it comes down to time. I’ve made it through the first few episodes of Life Is Strange so far and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it and it is top of the backlog queue for certain. Which is why I am glad to say that it looks like the team and Square Enix have opted to go ahead and bring us another title in the franchise due to all of the success it has had on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. Sadly, a list of platforms I don’t think this new game will be hitting.
You may have noticed that I have refrained from stating this will be a Life Is Strange sequel as the team and those behind it have yet to even state that it will be a sequel. It could be a spin-off or a whole new title in the same “universe” that the original was set in. This is how little information there is on this new Life Is Strange title at this point. Until we get some new solid information though, this is how it is going to stay in my book. This could be a while too as this is just an announcement that they are going to make this game and nothing else; except that we know it won’t be anywhere near E3 this year. To that extent I’m guessing any of the other major gaming cons coming up soon.
I suspect this is all due to the fact that DONTNOD, while proud that Life Is Strange sold three million copies to date, is starting to get fully behind their other IP Vampyr. They are only one team after all and we should just be glad that we have what we do at this point. Even though they did start out with a bit of a rough start with Remember Me, I think they started to hit the stride with Life Is Strange and are going great places. Unless this was their one big hit that they should have ended on, but I’d like to think that isn’t the case here at all. Hopefully…
