A Season 2 of Life is Strange, also referred to as Life is Strange 2, was announced by DONTNOD on May 18, 2017. In the announcement, the game was referred to as "a new Life is Strange game", leaving the possibility for "Life is Strange 2" or a complementary title as the game's name. It was confirmed that the team has been working on the second season since the release of the Limited Edition in February 2016.
Jean-Luc Cano, main writer for Season 2, confirmed on July 10th that the game would be released in 2018.
It's to be assumed that we will get further updates and more detailed information on the new game throughout the next months.
Square Enix, as the owner of Life is Strange's intellectual property, will likely act as the publisher again. Before the announcement it was already known that a second team at DONTNOD besides the Vampyr team was working on an unannounced project, which was rumored to be Life is Strange 2.
New information on the new season will be listed here.
- It was stated that Max and Chloe's story was told and that the new game would feature an entirely new cast.
- Alyzian, the artist who worked on the illustrations of Max's diary, confirmed on Twitter that she is working on the new game as well.
- Christian Divine, writer on Life is Strange also confirmed on Twitter that he is working on the sequel.
- It's confirmed that the second season will use the same engine that was used for the first game, Unreal Engine 4. This is evident from an ad for a job as character artist displayed by Dontnod. It also shows that new people are joining the developers teams for the new game.
