As Deck Nine Games’ Life is Strange: Before the Storm comes to a close with the bonus episode “Farewell”, more information on the next game will be coming soon. Dontnod Entertainment announced on the game’s Tumblr that it would be presenting more information on the new story and cast of the “next Life is Strange” game in the “coming months”.
“We now look forward to the coming months, when Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet’s team at Dontnod returns to present the new story and characters of the next Life is Strange,” the developer stated. That sounds like it’d be around the time a particular gaming expo will be held.
Regardless, this is a big deal for fans because it will be the first major continuation of the story since Life is Strange launched in 2015. Life is Strange: Before the Storm was a prequel that took place several years prior and focused on the relationship between Chloe and Rachel.
For now, it’s a matter of speculation – will Max Caulfield return in some way for the sequel? Will it still be set in Arcadia Bay? How does one explain the strange phenomenon that have been occurring over the past two games? Time will tell so stay tuned for more information.
