Pre-Production Underway On Dreamfall: The Longest Journey Sequel

I love a game with a great story and characters, so whenever I hear someone bring up Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, I'm filled with pangs of guilt because I still haven't gotten around to playing Funcom's highly regarded adventure. Now it looks like I'll really have to make an effort to play it sooner rather than later, as a followup is currently in pre-production at Red Thread Games.

This relatively new development studio was founded by Ragnar Tørnquist, the creator of The Longest Journey, so if any studio is capable of making a new entry, it's Red Thread. Tørnquist shared his excitement on the new project, saying:

I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the 'The Longest Journey' saga. 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.

Unfortunately, all we know at this point is that the game will be titled Dreamfall Chapters and that more news will be on the way in the coming months. As such, keep it locked to GameRevolution for future updates on this promising new title from Funcom.
