'Dreamfall: The Longest Journey' is a PC game from Funcom.
Online game publisher Funcom has entered into the pre-production phase for Dreamfall Chapters, a sequel Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Red Thread Games, a new studio founded by The Longest Journey creator Ragnar Tørnquist is heading up development.
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 a 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 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," said 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."
More details on this project are expected in the coming months from Red Thread Games.
