Life Is Strange Season 2 Coming Soon From Dontnod
Life is Strange
(Last Updated On: May 18, 2017)

Dontnod Entertainment posted a video message on their Tumblr blog to inform all their loyal fans who frequent Tumblr that a new Life is Strange game is in the works.

The team didn’t have much to share, other than that they have some big news regarding the next entry in Life Is Strange soon. The message is short and to the point, clocking in at a minute and a half. You can check it out below.

In case you have a hard time deciphering English spoken through a French accent, the blog lays it out in plain ‘ole text, where they state…
<blockquote.
“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.”
This isn’t necessarily new news.

We did have some word from Dontnod before that they were planning on working on a sequel to Life is Strange, so this is more confirmation rather than an out of the blue announcement.

As noted by DSO Gaming, the original Life Is Strange managed to move more than 3 million copies across the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Android, iPhone, PC and Linux.

The game followed awkward teenage lesbian Max in her time-altering adventures in order to uncover a murder at the school, help save her Chloe and attempt to navigate her way through the ups and downs of life.

Obviously the game was extremely popular with teenagers, snowflakes, SJWs, and people who understand all those awkward moments in life. The episodic nature of the game allowed them to release most of the episodes for pretty cheap, so it allowed for a much wider spread of the content as opposed to if they tried gunning for the $60 mark.

The animations and lip-synching weren’t the greatest, but for a budget-priced game it seemed to be serviceable enough for fans.

    Are they selling drugs? I think that’s the only way to justify -aka money laundering- spending money on making a sequel to this game.

  • Keystone

    I’ll be honest, only reason I’m looking forward to this game is so I can watch Bro Team wheeze his way through it on Twitch like he did for the first one.

  • SevTheBear

    As you said ind the article

    *Obviously extremely popular with teenagers, snowflakes, SJWs, and people who understand all those awkward moments in life*

    I am just glad that this game is it’s own thing and not a big beloved series they thought was a “good idea” to try out “new ideas” with (ME:A). I saw what the LIS is like on youtube. Holy shit, it’s Twilight level bad.

    • Phasmatis75

      It’s sad and hilarious watching other companies think they can push the same SJW crap and then watch their sales disappear.

  • BubbaHoTep

    I somewhat enjoyed the game and found the weird stuff going on a bit intriguing, but everything eventually fell apart; the explanation for the phenomenon was nonsense, your choices end up not mattering, and the ending was probably the only time I’ve ever felt that the entire experience was ruined retroactively.

    The game pulled a Mass Effect 3 and left the ending as an A or B choice. Both endings are so far from one another that the sequel will have to either follow a different story, make one ending canonical, or eliminate the final choice and converge the two endings into one, because they definitely won’t be able to handle carrying over save data.

    • Disqusted

      Yeah, the writing overall was not good. Half of the episodes felt like, “where are they trying to even take this?” because they were desperately trying to make audiences care about Chloe, and that ending was probably one of the worst endings I’ve ever seen.

      Chloe is the worst part of Life is Strange by far. It would probably have been better if they completely removed Chloe from the plot. Or let players kill her at every opportunity. It’s bullshit that they force you to rewind whenever she gets herself killed. They should have called the game something like “Friends are Forever”, since that was their damn focus.

      I do think Life is Strange was a lot better than their previous game, Remember Me, which was so pretentiously bad that I quit at the start.

      • Mr.Towel

        It’s quite ironic that everyone forgets Remember Me. That one was pure trash, not even the name helped it.

  • Disqusted

    Season 2 should be about Warren finally getting laid.

  • Uncle Joey

    Oh good, the sequel to Lesbian Tornado Simulator 2016!

  • MONAD

    Great. More lesbian hipster shit.

  • Gorgon

    What if I nod respectfully?

    But seriously, LIS was a shitty story about tumblr grade characters, plus absolutely nonsensical time travel mechanics and plot. The way people praised it is baffling to me.

    • Uncle Joey

      You live in a world where people praised Gone Home too.

    • Disqusted

      I hated the start, the end, and almost all of the characters. Especially Chloe, which is sad because much of the plot revolves around caring about her. The time travel mechanics weren’t used well, either.

      I like that they explored some dark themes that people often pretend don’t exist. Would be nice if more games did that.

      As far as I’m concerned, they chose the worst possible way to end the first season, making the entire series pointless. That deters me from even wanting to give the second season a chance. Maybe if it was about completely different characters who aren’t assholes, a protagonist with a better implemented special power, and different dark themes.

      • …so… Donnie Darko then?

        • Disqusted

          Whoops, I moved part of my comment to my separate comment. Yeah, something like Donnie Darko would be nice.

    • Phasmatis75

      Game Journo Pros and the entire journalistic industry being based out of San Fran should give you all the hints you need.
