Dreamfall Chapters, the long-awaited sequel for Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, has finally gone into pre-production. Funcom has announced it has licensed away the rights for The Longest Journey to Red Thread Games, a new studio run by series’ creator Ragnar Tørnquist.

“I’m very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the ‘The Longest Journey’ saga,” said Tørnquist. “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.”

More details about the new sequel will be revealed by Red Thread in the coming months.
