Before it became known with its hit series life is strangeDON’T NOD actually turned its attention to a more traditional action-adventure game Remember me. Creating an eye-catching aesthetic by mixing grunge and futurism, Remember me was an ambitious game that took the time-tested theme of dystopian mega-corporations overriding human free will and added unique mechanics centered around memories and consciousness. Unfortunately, despite the praise for the world view, the memory remixes and the soundtrack, the critics panned Remember me‘s formulaic combat and design choices.
However, sales over the years made it clear that the game had gained a cult following and the ideas at the heart of the game were solid. A sequel should therefore have been inevitable for such a title, but many factors led to it remember me 2 not developed, even though DON’T NOD Entertainment had plans for the future of the series, and ultimately the game remains in limbo. No official development has been confirmed for the sequel, and the latest news from Remember me Publisher Capcom suggests that the game is no longer viable under his name.

In a now-removed interview with Siliconera, creative director Jean-Maxime Moris confirmed that DON’T NOD had already planned a possible sequel. Not only did he state that DON’T NOD knew what additional content it would contribute to Remember me‘s “Recipe” but it was also aware of the game’s flaws and knew how to correct them. He mused that the sequel “is a game that’s ready to be made, but that decision is up to Capcom.” Despite this, remember me 2 never materialized as DON’T NOD continued to work on its burgeoning success life is Strange Series after its first “season”.
Although the reasons for this have not been officially confirmed by either DON’T NOD or Capcom, members of the DON’T NOD team involved in both Remember me and life is strange seem to indicate that Capcom was responsible for the Remember me Series ends with no sequel. Possible explanations could be that Capcom did not see a profitable future Remember meor that is trying to fix Remember me‘s mistake for a second possible mixed reaction wasn’t worth it. Regardless of the reasons, a sequel was never given the green light and DON’T NOD went on to other projects such as vampire.
DON’T NOD and Remember Me’s Future
When Moris’ comments about a Remember me sequel were made, DON’T NOD has just been released life is strange. It was arguably this second game that saved the studio from collapse, as evidenced by the mixed reaction Remember me had jeopardized the future of DON’T NOD. Despite being able to salvage its sales through digital offerings like Playstation Plus, the game’s initial release didn’t fare well commercially. Poor design choices aside, the release may have hurt in the later stages of the PS3 and Xbox 360 lifecycle Remember me.
With support from Square Enix for life is strange and the subsequent success and accolades the game earned, DON’T NOD effectively reinvented itself and focused on delivering its now widely acclaimed decision-oriented gameplay.

While some games weren’t big hits, such as vampireit has built a prestige it didn’t have when it started Remember me.
Therefore, if the studio wanted to, it could choose to revisit its debut game for a sequel. Given that DON’T NOD has since moved on life is strangeWith Life is strange: Real Colors Developed by Deck Nine, DON’T NOD now has the ability to develop any game you want. It was finally able to deliver its long-awaited, already planned Remember me To be continued as the next project, assuming it is able to wrest IP from Capcom. If Capcom has never had faith in the sequel before, it might not be difficult, but DON’T NOD’s new reputation could make publishers reconsider remember me 2‘s Potential.
