An increasingly common trend for eagerly-awaited games is the announcement of extra content such as Day One DLC and beyond announced before the main game is even released. Perhaps it’s refreshing then, that Life is Strange publisher Focus Home Interactive has admitted it has no plans for any DLC for upcoming action RPG Vampyr.

Speaking in an interview with MCV, president of Focus Home Interactive Cedric Lagarrigue said that the game ‘is a purely solo experience; we did not plan DLC. We would prefer, if the reception of the game justifies it, to think about a sequel. We and Dontnod already have some ideas, as there’s so many incredible things to offer in such a universe. ‘

Elsewhere in the interview, Lagarrigue also mentions what sort of numbers the game will have to do to be considered successful, at least from a publisher standpoint, indicating Vampyr benefits from not quite being considered a AAA game, but ‘will be considered a success when around a million copies are sold, but it will only need half of that to be profitable.’

Vampyr is set to release sometime in 2018 after slipping from its original forecast of this month, you can check out Alice’s preview here.
