Publisher Anuman Interactive and studio Microids have announced–via their facebook page–that the sequel to their highly-praised Syberia series is underway.
Benoit Sokal, the artistic director of the “Syberia saga,” has just signed a deal with Anuman Interactive to write the script for Syberia III, with Elliot Grassiano–founder of Microïds–overseeing the project under the Microïds label.
Anuman’s General Manager, Stéphane Longeard, had this to say:
“After two long years of waiting for the fans, with Benoit writing the script and Elliot joining our team, Syberia has truly entered its production phase. With its incredible feel and the sheer quality of the game, Syberia has carved out a special place for itself in gamers’ hearts. They are more than ever expecting the next installment. Today, fans of the series and adventure games enthusiasts have at last been rewarded for the patience.”
Benoit Sokal had this to add:
“I’m very pleased to be creating another Kate Walker adventure and working with Anuman Interactive’s teams on the project. I created the first two episodes of Syberia with Elliot, so I’m also really happy to be able to create this new one with him and illustrate the evolution of Anuman as a significant player in the adventure games industry.”
Syberia III is scheduled for release in 2014-2015, and will be coming out for multiple platforms.
