The Longest Journey and Dreamfall: The Longest Journey are two of the most beloved classic games between fans of the adventure genre, and today Funcom announced that a sequel titled Dreamfall Chapters has entered the pre-production stage.

It’s not the first time we heard about it, as it was initially announced in 2007, but the project fell into a limbo after that.

Dreamfall Chapters won’t be developed internally at Funcom, that is now focused on online games, but by a new studio named Red Thread Games, founded and led by The Secret World Creative Director Ragnar Tørnquist.

Red Thread Games acquired the license for The Longest Journey franchise from Funcom, and since the two companies will work closely together, Tørnquist will be able to continue working on The Secret World in is current role as Creative Director. He also shared a comment on the announcement:

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. 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.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Tørnquist confirmed genre and platforms on his own twitter account.

And no, Dreamfall Chapters won’t be an online game. It’s going to be a single-player PC/Mac adventure game through and through.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
