Syberia III is on its way!!!!! - 11/26/12 10:17 AM

After a lot of teasing, finally they confirm it!

Quote:
Montreuil, 26 November 2012. A few days before the "Game Connection Europe", French software publisher Anuman Interactive has announced a deal with author Benoit Sokal and confirmed that the game "Syberia III" (to be marketed under the Microïds label) will be created.More than three years after acquiring Microïds and few days after unveiling the future "Dracula: the Shadow of the Dragon", software publisher Anuman Interactive has announced a piece of news that video game enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting: the "Syberia III" project is underway, with Benoit Sokal (who wrote the first two Syberia) and Elliot Grassiano (the founder of Microïds) heading it up.

Benoit Sokal has just signed a deal with Anuman Interactive to write the script of "Syberia III" for 2013, while Elliot Grassiano (who founded Microïds in 1985 and made the company famous worldwide) will oversee, as Vice President of Microïds Unit, the development of new publications under the Microïds label.

Anuman Interactive has taken yet another step forward in its determination to become one of the main international names in adventure games.“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 instalment. Today, fans of the series and adventure games enthusiasts have at last been rewarded for the patience,” says Anuman’s General Manager, Stéphane Longeard.

Benoit Sokal, who is working as Artistic Director on the Syberia saga, adds : “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 a multiplatform game scheduled for release in 2014-2015.

Good news that they're going to make use of their properties.
I don't know where they get "two long years" from though

Syberia 2 was published in 2004, which means fans have been waiting 8 years for a sequel, not just 2. So it's not just "two long years," it's "eight longer years."

Dear me, this must be the best signed yet that we are out of the recession (was it a great depression?), and the end of the adventure games blackout.

Anuman must have made some money porting all the Microïds and White Birds games to iPad and Mac. That is all I have been doing these last few months, buying these games again and again for all platforms.

Hi, Carla!

I had to check the calendar to make sure it wasn't April 1st grin !

Thanks for the wonderful news! First we hear that another Tex Murphy game is in the works, and now Syberia 3. Can't get much better than that ... except, of course, if we hear that another Gabriel Knight game is on its way lol !

eek Wow, that's fantastic news!! What with Dreamfall Chapters and Syberia III both on the way, it feels like the early 2000's all over again. It's even the third installment for each game series. grin

Just added this to my list of several highly anticipated adventure games. Thanks Carla, for the great news! presents12

Oh wow! This is wonderful news. Syberia (1&2) are my very favorite games. I have 2 copies of each, you never know when you might need a spare. lol
My granddaughter recently put Syberia 1 on my PC for us to play again! Wait until I tell her there is definitely going to be a III! Thank you for the heads-up.
YES! penguin

I'd consider an announcement of any game by Sokal to be great news. That it's Syberia III leaves me searching for a word a couple of notches above "great".

Thanks, Carla!

I just hope don't need a NASA super computer to play. Most of my friends, and myself haven't been able to afford to get new pcs-so we're using 4yr old ones (sometimes older). No trouble(so far) with the J Fisher III games or Dark Falls, but there are a few newer ones that just won't work (Black Mirror 2 for example-although not impressed with game itself-dull-and just about the time you'd finally get to go to UK-pffff-game wouldn't run anymore. phiddly). Have been playing quite a few casual games and most run just dandy-and have no complaints about most of the graphics either-but when you've got to be in an absolute downpour(the last Ravenhurst)we get bogged down, the new MCF offering, which I had been so looking forward to is a no go for my pc. don't know why.and is not just my pc...so many problems .
BUT getting back to topic!!! Will so enjoy a new Syberia 3-and just hope they don't think gobs of fog,rain,or smoke is truly Atmosphere ! It Is the writing and gread movement and artwork but you don't have to blow it all over with rain,etc.
