In a special message today, Dontnod Entertainment announced that a brand new Life is Strange game is currently in development. The original Life is Strange team is handling the title, which has been been in the works since the retail version of Life is Strange launched early last year.
The new Life is Strange won’t be at E3 2017 this year, but Dontnod says they are “hard at work ensuring it is the very best game we can create.”
Their full message also reveals that Life is Strange has sold more than three million copies:
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. 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!
It also looks like Square Enix will return as the publisher.
