The team behind last year’s new sci-fi IP Remember Me has been signed by Square Enix to create a new game for digital platforms.
There are no details on what Paris-based studio Dontnod Entertainment is actually working on, but judging from the comments below, we’re guessing it’s a different take on "traditional story-driven games".
It’s not clear if this will be a new IP, or a spin-off of a Square Enix property such as Tomb Raider, Deus Ex or Final Fantasy. It’s also unclear whether the studio has cut ties with Remember Me publisher Capcom.
Earlier this year, reports suggested Dontnod had filed for bankruptcy following poor sales of Remember Me,but the company denied this, instead saying it was undergoing a "judicial reorganisation" so it could "re-adapt" its production pipeline for what it called a "new situation". Presumably a situation where it works on lower risk download games rather than high-end titles for the increasingly punishing retail market.
