Dontnod won’t be bringing the Life is Strange sequel to E3 2017, but it’s definitely in progress.
Life is Strange really did come out of nowhere, didn’t it? The beautiful, poignant, and very strange – it would be false advertising if it wasn’t strange, right? – tale form Dontnot Entertainment is really something a little special.
It’s Telltale-esque in style, but without the constraints of existing franchises. Its production quality is up there with Until Dawn, but it’s more enjoyable to play. It’s like Gone Home mixed with Oxenfree, and that’s just brilliant, actually.
It’s rather good news, then, that Dontnod have a Life is Strange sequel in the works. Here’s what information we do have from a news post on their website:
“We can indeed confirm that the original Life is Strange team at Dontbod are working on a brand new Life is Strange game. We can’t wait to tell you all about it when the time is right, but for now we are hard at work ensuring it is the very best game we can create. We’re really thankful for your patience thus far and ask for a bit more time.”
Interesting that they’re referred to it as a “brand new Life is Strange game” and not a “Life is Strange sequel” or even “Life is Strange 2” – so perhaps there might be scope for a prequel, or a different story entirely, rather than a straight-up sequel.
Whatever it is, we’re looking forward to it.
