Deck Nine Studios ‘absolutely’ want to revisit Life is Strange after Before the Storm

Life is Strange: Before the Storm lead writer Zak Garris has said he’d like to work on the adventure series again if given the chance. 

Currently working on the final episode of prequel Before the Storm, Garris said the franchise has ‘really exciting’ potential moving forward in an interview with Trusted Reviews.

‘Absolutely, I think it’s really exciting to see where the franchise could go and getting to see the reception for Before the Storm and knowing that DONTNOD is working really hard on the next iteration of the franchise.’

Life is Strange Season 2 is now in development at DONTNOD Entertainment and will feature a new setting and cast of characters. Knowing this, Deck Nine may expand upon its universe with a mini-series just like Before the Storm.

Garris also commented on how positive feedback has been since the launch of Before the Storm, expressing how it spells a ‘bright future’ for the genre.

‘I think it’s exciting to see where Life is Strange can go and where narrative-adventure games can go because of Life is Strange and the ways it’s challenged the market and said you can tell cinematic adventure stories with rich gameplay.’

The third and final episode of Before the Storm is currently in the works at Deck Nine Studios, although Garris was unable to share a release date with us. Fingers crossed we’ll see it before 2017 comes to a close.
