In a short announcement video published by Dontnod, the French developer have confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Life is unusual. "So, what we can share today is the fact that we've been working, since the release of the box version past year, on a new Life is odd game, with the Life is unusual team", the devs say.
They've revealed that the game won't be at E3, and they're not ready to talk about exactly what the sequel will entail at this point, but they're promising gamers that it's the very best game that they can possibly create. "We're really thankful your your patience thus far and ask for a bit more time" reads the post. The game won't be at E3 this year, but Dontnod is now working hard on making the game as we speak.
Yesterday, DONTNOD Entertainment announced the news that lots of us have been waiting for: Life is unusual season two is indeed in production. A boxed version containing all five episodes is also available. But judging by the wording used in the special message, it will aim for a similar gameplay and storytelling strucure.
Life is unusual was a real turnaround for the small studio, which used to be in trouble following the disappointing sales of Remember Me, its first game released in 2013.
The studio confirmed it has sold over 3m copies of Life is unusual, in a thankful message to the community.
Released episodically throughout 2015, Life is unusual followed the story of highschool student Max Caulfield and her best friend Chloe. But we'd happily take another trip back into Life is Strange's time-travelling teen world.
For those unaware, Life is odd is an episode game that released every few months that led to its physical compilation which launched on January 19, 2016. The first game followed an episodic format, which not only aided the team in development but made for an interesting narrative mechanic. Life Is Strange came out of nowhere to become of the biggest hits on blew not only gamers, but also critics away.
