Yarny won’t be around for a good while.
The Unravel series was one of those interesting indie projects that managed to find its way to the mainstream. It got EA as a publisher, which helped its profile immensely. The second game made its way to the Switch in March, but it looks like this could be the last hooray for Yarny, the adorable main character, for a bit as developer Coldwood Interactive seems to be moving on- at least for now.
In an interview with Sector, Director Martin Sahlin confirmed that the company is working on other things right now. He says that a third game could come later on, but the studio wants to focus on different stories, and as of right now, they just don’t have a natural flowing one in mind for Yarny.
“As for other stories, I don’t know,” said Sahlin. “Stories I like to tell are lived and discovered. That is, the experiences you have experienced and can be transformed into a story. And that depends on what’s going on. Now I’m focusing on other things, but that doesn’t mean we’ll never see more Unravel games in the future. If we find a story that unfolds, then yes.”
We don’t know what the company is working on as of now, but Unravel was an inventive little series, so it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with for the future. Unravel is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Its sequel, Unravel Two, is available on all the same platforms, plus the Nintendo Switch.
