Just yesterday, the Farewell episode of Life is Strange: Before the Storm dropped to conclude the much-adored arc of Max Caulfield and Chloe Price. Now, we’ve heard word that we won’t have to wait long for the sequel (which was announced last year).
There was a new post on the official Life is Strange Tumblr today, talking about the Farewell episode and the current period of transition for the series. The end of the post actually hints that the next game will be talked about soon:
“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. Until then, Farewell!”
Hmm – is it just coincidence that E3 is a few months away? Last E3 we saw the announcement of Before the Storm at the Microsoft presentation, so might we see a similar trick this year?
The Tumblr post also confirms that Life is Strange 2 will be introducing a new story, away from the characters we know and love: “… we bid a fond farewell to Max, Chloe, Rachel and all the other fan favourites of Arcadia Bay.”
Personally, I haven’t gotten to Farewell yet, but I’m ready for emotions when I do. Have you played Life is Strange? Are you excited about a sequel? You can let us know in the comments!
