Dontnod has already completed work on a story for a sequel to Remember Me, but it’s up to Capcom to decide whether the game will ever see the light of day, creative director Jean-Maxime Moris has revealed.
“I would absolutely love to [work on a sequel],” Moris told Siliconera. “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.”
In the meantime, the studio is focused squarely on episodic adventure Life is Strange, which Moris hopes will secure a second season.
“I really hope we will be able to work on more Life is Strange [beyond the five episodes],” he continued. “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 launched in summer 2013 but the developer’s approach to its intriguing memory hunting premise left critics divided.
“Remember Me is nothing more than an entirely forgettable tour de farce of archaic game design,” read our review. “Its horrific dialogue, sickening camera and regressive combat are major blips in a title that poses one major question: was this game worth releasing? ‘Dontnod’ is arguably the right answer.”
