Our two wolf brothers’ journey come to an end!
Today, December,3rd 2019 is an important day for us as it is the full release of Life is Strange 2!
Co-creators and Directors Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet, Co-creator and Writer Jean-Luc Cano and Producer Luc Baghadoust wanted to share a few words:
Thank you from Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet – Co-creators and Directors
When you start thinking about a new project, you never know where it’s going to take you.
After the first Life is Strange, when the three of us (Michel Koch, Raoul Barbet, and Jean-Luc Cano) first met to write this new story and these new characters, we never imagined how much impact Sean and Daniel would have on us, and how many incredible moments we would share along the way.
We have shared heartfelt moments in the process of creating the game, and in some poignant scenes within its episodes. We have also shared them with the community, and all the amazing people we have met – and of course with the whole team, who have worked so passionately and so hard all these years.
It has been a long and difficult production since we began with The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, and we are now proud to complete this journey together: both the team behind Life is Strange 2 and you, the players from all over the world.
We all now find ourselves before this final choice in Episode 5, in the middle of the desert…
We hope this story will speak to you, make you want to travel, and want to share it. Enjoy the game!
Michel & Raoul
Thank you from Jean-Luc Cano – Co-creator and Writer
Here we are. The end of the road.
When you go on a trip, you often think first about the destination, where you want to go.
It’s been four years – our first-ever brainstorm on Life is Strange 2 was on December 1, 2015 – since we started to walk the roads alongside Sean and Daniel. Four years during which we had a lot of good times, but also weathered a lot of storms. To question oneself, to propose new things, to explore new themes; all of this is not easy.
But in our toughest moments, there’s something we’ve always been able to count on: you.
Your feedback, your messages, your encouragement – your criticism, too – they have carried us throughout this adventure.
In joy and doubt, in victory and in our search for answers, we were never alone. On all these roads, you were with us.
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Today, the journey is coming to an end. For us, as was the case for Max and Chloe, the story of Sean and Daniel is over, and we now have to let them go. It’s up to them to fly on their own, to take their independence.
It is therefore with great pride, but also a little sadness and nostalgia, that we wish good luck to our Wolf Brothers.
Their story is told. They are yours now, they belong to you.
Vaya con Dios, Wolf Brothers! The important thing is not the destination, but the journey…
Thank you from Luc Baghadoust – Producer
One could assume that we are used to releasing games and episodes: since January 30th, 2015, we have released 5 Episodes of Life is Strange, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, and 5 Episodes of Life is Strange 2.
Each time, the team goes through periods of intense creativity that escalate to panic mode (as the days to release fly by). The excitement builds every day, until the moment the episode is finally out.
Each time we release, we watch the streams, the reactions, read the comments, EVERYTHING…
This time it’s special.
As Jean-Luc says, this is finally the end of the road. Just like Sean and Daniel on their journey, we have shared great moments and difficult times. We all held together in front of the elements, never slowed our momentum or our onward march, and met awesome people all along the road.
This is the time for the Life is Strange team at DONTNOD to thank everyone that helped us create this project, the players that gave the chance to the game and supported us from the start, and the ones who will soon discover the wolf brothers’ story.
We will never forget our journey, and we hope yours will be as memorable.
We hope to see you soon.
