Definitely not indefinite
Several of you have asked me about the following statement, made by Funcom’s Director of Communications in a recent interview:
“Actually, we have put the development of the Dreamfall Chapters on indefinite hold. We might pick them up again, but there are no plans for that as of now.”
Which, admittedly, doesn’t sound good.
Since Funcom’s PR and marketing department is focused on the immediate to near future, however – and on our big deep-into-production titles like Age of Conan’s expansion pack and The Secret World – their wording will obviously reflect that. Dreamfall is, admittedly, small fry compared with our MMORPG behemoths. At least in terms of scope, cost and potential revenue.
The truth is, while Dreamfall Chapters is on hold right now, it’s temporary, not indefinite, and there are most certainly plans to continue as soon as it’s viable to do so. I’m just one person, but when I have the spare time, I tinker with the design, story and characters for the episodic continuation to Dreamfall. And the moment it makes sense to do so, we’ll put together a team and start production.
So do not abandon hope! We have every intention of returning to the universe and to reward our fans with a fitting continuation – and eventual conclusion – to the saga.
