It seems Dontnod are on a role with releases as the first episode of Life Is Strange 2 will launch September 27th, 2018.
This will put the game’s release three months after the free spin-off The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. It was also recently announced to be launching a day earlier than expected on June 25th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Though the spin-off isn’t part of The Life Is Strange 2 season, it will feature overlapping characters. Any decisions made in the spin-off will also affect Life Is Strange 2, though to what degree is unknown.
Life Is Strange 2’s reveal trailer, which shows the game’s release date, doesn’t offer much info beyond it simply being called Life Is Strange 2, though Dontnod says more will be revealed in August.

The announcement comes as quite a surprise. The game was not only absent from E3, but the developers recently announced that Twin Mirror, which was shown with gameplay and everything, won’t be launching until next year.
Life Is Strange season 2 is now the developer’s third announced game this month after Twin Mirror. Twin Mirror is a brand new episodic psychological thriller created in partnership with Bandai Namco. As for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, that game launches this coming Monday for free.
Dontnod have confirmed that Life Is Strange will be a completely standalone sequel, with a new location and cast of characters independent from the original and its prequel Life Is Strange: Before the Storm. Expect to hear more about the game in August, likely at the Gamescom event.
