The Secret World’ Creative Director Ragnar Tørnquist working on next installment in the award-winning ‘The Longest Journey’ series


Quote:
Durham, USA – November 1st, 2012 – Funcom is excited to announce that 'Dreamfall Chapters', the long-awaited sequel to the award-winning adventure title 'Dreamfall: The Longest Journey', has gone into pre-production at Red Thread Games, a new studio founded by Ragnar Tørnquist, creator of 'The Longest Journey' saga.

Red Thread Games has licensed the rights to 'The Longest Journey' universe from Funcom, and Mr. Tørnquist will spearhead development of 'Dreamfall Chapters', while continuing in an advisory role as Creative Director on Funcom’s recently launched modern-day massively multiplayer online game ‘The Secret World’.

Last month Joel Bylos stepped into the position as Game Director on the myths, legends and conspiracy themed online game, allowing Mr. Tørnquist to devote more of his time to 'Dreamfall Chapters', which recently entered pre-production.

Red Thread Games will independently fund and produce the sequel to 'Dreamfall', and has entered into a revenue sharing agreement with Funcom as part of the licensing deal. Funcom owns the intellectual property rights for 'The Longest Journey', but due to the company’s focus on and commitment to the development of online games, the decision was made to license the rights to Mr. Tørnquist and his new development studio. The close working relationship between Funcom and Mr. Tørnquist will allow him to continue on as Creative Director of Funcom’s ‘The Secret World’, in parallel with putting together a team to develop 'Dreamfall Chapters'.

“I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the 'The Longest Journey' saga,” says Ragnar 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."

Red Thread Games will release more details about 'Dreamfall Chapters' in the coming months.


Happy Gaming!

I just saw Ragnar Tornquist announce this on Twitter and I couldn't be more excited. The Longest Journey is still one of my favorite games and the game that got me into adventure games.!

On a side note I've been playing The Secret World, which is my first online game, and am enjoying it. I keep waiting, however, for someone to say "Blessed be the Balance" ;-)

Thanks, BrownEyedTigre smile

Godd news indeed !!

Although I'm hoping this new production will be more like the original TLJ than Dreamfall - as that would be the best news for me lol

I have mixed feelings myself as I was one of TLJ's biggest fans and was so disappointed in Dreamfall.

Oh well, it's not like it's around the corner or anything. When games are announced it means that in a year or so they'll get it finished.

Looks like Ragnar had to form his own production company to be able to continue the TLJ story. I'm kind of impressed that he did that.

What impresses me most is that Ragnar does not appear to need a Kickstarter campaign. That is one campaign that would have got a million easily... with me contributing most of it.
