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.

This is wonderful news. The Syberia games are among my all-time absolute favourites.

We just have to be patient for 2/3 years now. laugh

Thanks, Carla!

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.

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 point, therefore I click.

Wonderful news! These are without question my favorite adventure games. I'm so happy to hear that III is moving forward.

Now I will try to forget about it, if possible, so I won't be constantly thinking about it.
