Way to keep us on the edge of our seats DONTNOD. After the revelations in the last episode, fans of the cult indie hit, Life is Strange, are almost wetting themselves with excitement for the finale, but we’re going to have to wait until October to find out the conclusion of what is my personal favourite game of 2015.

When launching the first episode of Life is Strange DONTNOD revealed that they hoped to have around a month gap between each episode, and while that promise has been more or less kept, the wait for the finale is going to be a little longer…

Set to launch on October 20, we’re yet to wait an additional month for the climax of Arcadia Bay’s drama-filled town, something DONTNOD has addressed in a new update for fans:

“We’ve seen that a lot of you can’t wait to play the Life is Strange finale and are eagerly awaiting a release date. The episode is getting closer to submission and we have almost completed development.

We don’t normally announce a date until we know the game is 100% ready but in the spirit of Max’s birthday (today) we wanted to let you know early that we are aiming to release Episode 5 ‘Polarized’ October 20.

Many things can change in the lead up to release but the team are working really hard to try and hit this date. We know the wait may be a bit longer than some of you were hoping for but we want to ensure Episode 5 is the best it can be.

Your tweets, comments and messages have kept us going through this busy stage of development and we can’t thank you enough for your continued support.

Life is Strange has shifted over one million copies and has become a bit of a surprise hit. It’s a fantastic game and is in my running for 2015 game of the year. A sequel to the game may happen, but it’s highly likely the current cast will be replaced.
