The Parisian cyberpunk of Dontnod Entertainment’s debut title Remember Me offered a refreshing change of pace from standard action fare, and it was easy to see the potential for a sequel to expand on the world and resolve some of the shortcomings in gameplay.
Apparently, the team behind the game is just as eager to get that second opportunity—but they also admit that the decision isn’t up to them. “I would absolutely love to [work on a sequel],” creative director Jean-Maxime Moris told Siliconera. “We know what we would do for Remember Me 2. The main story has been written we know what we would add to the recipe. We know what we would fix. It’s a game that’s ready to be made, but that decision is Capcom’s to make.”
Of course, there’s no guarantee that Capcom will ever follow through on a sequel. Sales for the first game, projected at around half a million copies, would no doubt have been disappointing for the publisher, and the middling review scores probably didn’t help soften that blow. Dontnod has, however, fared better with critics so far with their latest project, the episodic adventure game Life is Strange, so it’s entirely possible that the extra experience from a second project could convince Capcom that Remember Me is worth a second go.
