DONTNOD Entertainment has teased when we’ll be able to head back to the Northwest in Life is Strange 2‘s second episode, though we’ll have to wait at least another month.
Life is Strange 2 debuted back in September, and while it hasn’t seen the same hype as the series’ previous entries many have been wondering what exactly is going on with the second episode. Usually episodes in the series launch around two to three months apart, however this time it seems DONTNOD are taking their time.
In a statement over on their Tumblr blog, DONTNOD wrote:
“The Life is Strange series is a project close to all of our hearts and one for which we do not want to rush development and thereby fail to meet the benchmark of quality and emotional impact that you, our players, deserve. This is why we so far have not announced an official release date – we want to ensure that we will be in a position to release something that we are proud of and that you will enjoy and remember forever.
“We understand that there are certain expectations that episodes will be released at a similar cadence as previous Life is Strange games have. The ambition of Life is Strange 2, however, means that the previous frameworks no longer apply if we are to meet the quality of play and storytelling that our vision for a game like this demands and that you deserve.”
Because of this, Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2 will be launching in January 2019, the developer has revealed. More information on the second episode is expected to be unveiled later this month so stay tuned for that.
