Raoul Barbet, co-director on Dontnod Entertainment’s Life Is Strange, has refused to rule out the possibility that the five-part episodic series could be released collectively in a physical version.
During an interview with YouTuber Karcamo Gaming at E3, Barbet warmly welcomed the notion of Life Is Strange having physical copies distributed to retail stores, but he believes a lot of this depends on the commercial success of the title.
“We hope we gonna be able to do it, [but] it will depend on a lot of things — the success of the game, I guess,” Barbet explained. “And yeah, so far the public reaction has been really good, so maybe in the future we’re gonna be able to do it, but I cannot say right now.”
Life Is Strange producer Luc Baghadoust was alongside Barbet for the interview at E3, and when he was asked about what players should be expecting to see in the next episode of Life Is Strange, titled ‘Dark Room,’ Baghadoust suggested that the episode will be “intense.”
“I don’t want to spoil anything,” Baghadoust said. “We want the player to discover this when Episode 4 is gonna be released, so I don’t want to tell anything. I just want to tell that it’s going to be intense.
“So we had this [voice-over] recording session recently, and I was with the guys and I was, like, hiding tears because it was so intense and I didn’t want to show that I was crying. It’s going to be great.”
Last week at E3, Life Is Strange co-director Michel Koch revealed that the final two episodes would be released before the end of 2015 and that Dontnod Entertainment is nearing the end of development on Episode 4: Dark Room.
While an official release date has not been confirmed, Life Is Strange Episode 4: Dark Room will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
