Life Is Strange Episode 2 Has Been Delayed

A Square Enix representative confirmed that Life Is Strange episode 2 has been delayed until further notice. Dontnod Entertainment originally planned to have each episode released six weeks apart and this certainly doesn't fall under their plan.

Update:

Square Enix made a statement on the delay saying,"development is on track and we’re looking to release it before the end of March."

Does this make anyone hella-sad? /s

Actually yeah, I thought the first episode was pretty good, eager to play ep 2.

joab7772898d ago

Yeah. I wonder if they read reviews and it wasn't everything they hoped, so they are gonna revamp.

gamer78042897d ago

@joab777 the reviews actually were pretty good almost 8/10ish

me, the first episode was pretty stunning and left me wanting for more, but its not like we wont be busy with FF Type-0, Hotline Miami 2, Jamestown+, Axiom Verge and Bloodborne anyway, so i guess i can still wait a little longer(even if im still kinda "hella" sad about the delay)

Kingdomcome2472898d ago

I loved the first episode. I take it you didn't like it?

Monkeycan82898d ago

Episodic gaming, ladies and gentlemen.

There's good and bad. The bad is that at anytime, they can stop, or delay for whatever reason. Good is that they can delay something and make it better, or add or change based on feedback.

Early access is good like that too. I see Sony may get into it with the PS4. But, my only issue is the price to basically playtest. They used to pay us to do that. Now, we pay them. I understand that $60 isn't what it used to be, many games can't justify $60, and the cost of making a game can be quite high.

I just wonder if early access is another way, like dlc, to add to the final number. They are getting quite ingenious these days.

I'd almost prefer to pay $80 for a game, and just be more selective in what I play. Soo, I am almost sure, things will move towards subscription fees. Pay Sony $20 month to play whatever you want.

Just like anime on crunchroll waiting a week for the next episode and years for the second season. One word aaaaaarghhh.

gamer78042897d ago

true, but at least with this game they had actually completed 20% of each of the other episodes before releasing the first one.

Pedantic912898d ago (Edited 2898d ago )

Maximizing sales of the first episode ? Why release the second one when they're still buying the first one.

joab7772898d ago

That's true, except why not ride the wave and then for those who missed, sell the season?

gamer78042897d ago

people aren't going to skip episodes, worst case scenario they buy the first and don't buy the rest, they won't skip the first.

s45gr322898d ago

Noooo,man I was looking forward to the next episode. This is sad
