Action adventure sci-fi video game Remember Me launched way back in 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. It was the first title from French developer DONTNOD Entertainment, who you’ll probably recognise more for their episodic adventure game Life is Strange, and it was pretty damn excellent. But for anyone hoping that the game would get a remaster for current-gem consoles, you might not want to hold your breath…
On Twitter, DONTNOD Entertainment responded to a fan question about whether Remember Me could get a remaster. Unfortunately it seems the IP is in the hands of Capcom and it’d be up to them to put it into action.
@L0NGSHOT28 mmmh, well Capcom actually owns the rights to Remember Me, so it would be up to them :)

This isn’t the first time we’ve been reminded that Remember Me is in the hands of Capcom, in March last year in an interview with Siliconera, Jean-Maxime Moris, Creative Director at DONTNOD revealed that the story for a sequel has been written and the game is ready to be made, but again it’s up to Capcom to green light the game.
Unfortunately a remaster or sequel seems like a far-off idea as aside from Capcom’s permission, DONTNOT are currently busy working on their next game Vampyr, an action RPG where players take the role of a vampire doctor who’s thirst for blood compels him to kill innocent people. Vampyr is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2017.
