    Awesome! I love the Syberia series. :D
    2014/15 is a long wait, but I’ve waited this long, what’s another couple years? :p

    Ya know… I really hate it when they announce games or movies this far in advance. It’s just annoying if anything. Just wait until 1-2 years before release, THEN announce it.

    It’s 2012 right now and you’re saying it could release as late as 2015? Come on. It’s ridiculous.

      Have you heard of a certain game rumored to be released by Square Enix in the next century named…. something along the lines of… 
      I’m forgetting already…
      What was it again?
      Something to do with versus?

      Don’t complain fool.

        You ever heard of Duke Nukem Forever?

        Point is, just because it has been done before doesn’t mean it should be done again. Do you honestly like waiting for 3+ years after a game has been announced until you finally get your hands on it? How much you want to bet that we probably won’t even start getting actual info and coverage of this until mid 2013?

        It’s just a bit premature, I think, that’s all. Also, I could have done without your “fool” comment. You can get your point across without presenting yourself as a condescending jackass.

        Just something to consider before you try laying down the “facts” next time.

      I’ll have to agree with you here. I don’t like it and I honestly don’t think it’s a good idea to announce a project years in advance. You never know what might happen, and so many projects get canned before they are even announced.

      It’s even tougher when you announce something is coming out in like 3 or 4 years, and then a year or so later, you have to explain to fans why it isn’t happening, if for some reason things don’t work out.

    i just hope they put they remake the first and second game and ship it alongside with the third to make a trilogy pack both on PC and next gen consoles!

    I swore they already announced this game like twice already. But whenever it comes, I’ll buy it.
