Dontnod “Would Love” To Develop Life Is Strange Season 2; Sophomore Effort Could Follow New Characters


While Telltale Games continues to branch off into seemingly every IP under the sun, French developer Dontnod Entertainment is very much concerned with keeping its episodic template in the sepia-tinged locales of Life is Strange, after the studio revealed it “would love” to continue the story of Max and Chloe with a second season.

Speaking in an interview with Polygon, Producer Luc Baghadoust touched upon the status of the remaining two episodes and how, despite the trials and tribulations of development, the creative team would greatly enjoy exploring a sophomore season should Square Enix issue the greenlight.

“We would love to have the opportunity to do another season. We’re working so hard to finish Episodes 4 and 5. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of stress. We have a limit of time to put out each episode. We want to stick to the eight week release between each episode as much as we can.”

What makes Life is Strange so intriguing, though, is the core characters at the heart of the time-bending story. Max and Chloe have undoubtedly resonated with fans of the teen-centric drama, and though we’re excited to see how the developer brings their narrative to a close, Dontnod may go down the anthology route and start a new season with a completely new cast of characters.

“We can really go with other characters, other locations, but still keep the identity of the game, the themes of the game,” Art Director Michel Koch added.

Think True Detective‘s refreshing narrative template, but for video games. At the time of writing, a second season of Life is Strange is still up for question, but you can share your thoughts on the episodic series down below.
