Life Is Strange

The episodic graphic adventure game was first released in January 2015 for Playstation, Xbox, and PC systems, and now game developers Dontnod Entertainment have confirmed they are working on a follow-up.

In a special message posted to their website in honour of reaching three million unique players of the game, developers said: "If you're reading this, you've likely already heard or watched the news ... we reached over 3 million unique paying players! It's an incredible achievement and one we could not have reached without you, our fantastic community! You helped spread positive words about our game and have continually kept the world interested in what happens next.

"We also revealed a key piece of information that many of you have been waiting some time for now - we can indeed confirm that the original 'Life is Strange' team at DONTNOD 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. (sic)"

Dontnod also confirmed the game will not be ready in time for the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next month.

Their post continued: "The new game will not be at E3 in June this year but we will be watching the show alongside you all and wish everyone good luck!"

'Life is Strange' followed the life of troubled teenager Max Caulfield, a photography student who has the ability to rewind time. The story changes depending on the choices made by the player throughout the game, with the plot largely being focused on the repercussions of the butterfly effect.
