Remember Me Sequel is “Ready to Be Made”
Remember Me, released on last-gen consoles back in 2013. It gathered mixed reviews, but gained a large fan following, due to its unique gameplay and its striking visual style. It featured a beautiful futuristic world and a very interesting protagonist. Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind Remember Me, and the recent Life is Strange, has shown interest in developing a sequel to Remember Me. Dontnod's creative director Jean-Maxime Moris spoke more about the status of their games at PAX East 2015.
In an interview with Siliconera, Moris explained the studio's interest in developing a sequel to Remember Me , and the decision rests on Capcom,
“We know what we would do for Remember Me 2. The main story has been written we know what we would add to the recipe. We know what we would fix. It’s a game that’s ready to be made, but that decision is Capcom’s to make.”
“But, right now our focus is [Life is Strange]. I really hope we will be able to work on more Life is Strange [beyond the five episodes]. We need to capitalize on what we have done. It is a balance of trying different things and capitalizing on what we know. For Season 2 we started bouncing ideas off each other. Obviously we need to see and Square Enix needs to see how the first season does to really decide whether we kick it off or not. So, it’s not in the works, but we have started the very early stages of conception at Dontnod.”
Remember Me, featured a beautifully realised futuristic world and interesting gameplay
It would be great if developer Dontnod Entertainment got the green light from Capcom on a sequel for Remember Me. The game, even though it had a few shortcomings it featured very solid gameplay, a beautifully realised futuristic world and a very interesting main character. A sequel building on the premise of the original, while improving certain aspects, could prove to be a great title.
Given Dontnod's dedication to their latest project, Life is Strange, of which I enjoyed the first episode immensely, it could take a while before we see a sequel to Remember Me. It holds true however that Life is Strange, even though a title in a completely different genre, it shows the same amount of vision and artistic talent as the studio's first title. I hope that Life is Strange gets the recognition it deserves, and that we get to enjoy an expansive story arc, like Dontnod Entertainment originally intended.
We will bring you any more information on Remember Me, and Life is Strange as soon as we get it.
