Funcom has announced the development of the next chapter in the award-winning The Longest Journey series. The project, titled Dreamfall Chapters, is currently in pre-production at Red Thread Games, a new studio founded by series creator Ragnar Tornquist.
Due to Funcom’s commitment and focus to online games, Red Thread Games will independently fund and produce the upcoming sequel as part of a revenue sharing agreement with license owner Funcom. Tornquist will continue his position as Creative Director on Funcom’s MMO The Secret World while simultaneously forming a team to develop Dreamfall Chapters.
“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,” said Ragnar Tornquist.
“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.”
Expect more details on Dreamfall Chapters in the coming months.
