A Life is Strange sequel has officially been confirmed after a brief video posted by developer DONTNOD. The original game has managed to gather plenty of fans with the sequel's development beginning last year.

According to PC Gamer, developer DONTNOD released a short video telling fans about the success of the first game and their plans for the title. They stated that over a whopping three million people enjoyed the Twin Peaks-inspired adventure since launch before announcing that they are making a sequel. The developers claimed that the second game has been under development since last year after the release of the boxed version.

For those unaware, Life is Strange is an episode game that released every few months that led to its physical compilation which launched on Jan. 19, 2016. With this in mind, the DONTNOD team has been developing the sequel for roughly a year and a half.

The details they shared about the upcoming game were scarce as the video focused more on the announcement than anything else. Moreover, DONTNOD did not mention if this would be another episodic game or if Square Enix would be the publisher again, as per Metro. It is also unsure if this will be a direct sequel or be a completely different story instead.

Those who are hoping for an E3 reveal should not get their hopes up as DONTNOD has ruled out this possibility on their blog. Since the first game was revealed at Gamescom in August, there might be a chance they will reveal the initial details at the same event this year.

Life is Strange followed the story of Maxine Caulfield who moved back to her childhood home, Arcadia Bay. There, she discovers that she has the power to control time and ends up getting tangled in various mysteries including the disappearance of a missing girl and stopping the town from being destroyed by a tornado.
