The Longest Journey saga returns with Ragnar Tørnquist in charge no less!
Funcom has announced that a new game in ‘The Longest Journey’ saga has entered pre-production, dubbed ‘Dreamfall Chapters’.
Last month the gaming world reeled as Mr Tørnquist stepped away from The Secret World to pursue other projects and it seems this was one of them.
“I’m very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the ‘The Longest Journey’ saga,” the acclaimed storyteller revealed.
“Ever since we ended ‘Dreamfall’ on a nail-biting cliffhanger, players have been rightfully demanding a sequel, and my deal with Funcom will finally make that possible. I’m extremely grateful to Funcom for this unique and exciting opportunity, and I can’t wait to dive back into the universe I helped create more than a decade ago, and continue the story players have been waiting for these past six years.”
Interestingly Dreamfall Chapters won’t be from Funcom, instead it will be developed by a Red Thread Games who have licensed the universe from the aforementioned studio.
Frankly this news couldn’t make us happier. With a new adventure game from Tim Schafer and Rob Gilbert in the works, a new Broken Sword and Dreamfall returning to monitors, it seems the adventure genre really is in a healthy state.
Expect more news on this exciting sequel soon…
