Square Enix and Dontnod’s interesting adventure game Life is Strange is only one episode deep, but fans of the first have been patiently waiting for news of the second’s release date. After some rumors that Episode 2 had, in fact, been delayed out of March, word comes from Dontnod that the third month of the year does mark the launch of the second episode of its game.
Life is Strange Episode 2 will release on March 24. Here’s the tweet from Dontnod in question.

There has been some mild controversy surrounding this whole release date thing. Early on in the marketing for Life is Strange, both Square Enix and Dontnod said that the game’s episodes would release on a six week schedule. That is, every six weeks will see a new episode until the five episode series is done.
March 24, while certainly soon, is more than six weeks away from the first episode’s Jan. 30 launch. It’s closer to eight weeks.
Whatever the case may be, I know I’m looking forward to more from this game. Life is Strange showed up out of nowhere for me. I loved the first episode, and I’ll be playing the second once it arrives.
Stay tuned for more on this one as it comes.
