Dreamfall: The Longest Journey sequel announced, in pre-production at new Red Thread Games studio

Dreamfall Chapters, sequel to adventure game Dreamfall: The Longest Journey, is in pre-production at Red Thread Games, the series' former developer Funcom announced today.

The new studio, founded by the creator of The Longest Journey saga Ragnar Tornquist, has licensed the rights from Funcom, the Norwegian studio behind the recently released MMORPG The Secret World. Tornquist will continue to work for Funcom in an advisory role as creative director of The Secret World while heading development on Dreamfall Chapters.

Dreamfall Chapters will be independently funded and produced by Red Thread Games. The studio has formed a revenue sharing agreement with Funcom as part of its licensing deal with the company due to Funcom's ownership of the intellectual property rights for The Longest Journey titles.

"I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the The Longest Journey saga," said Ragnar Tørnquist in a prepared statement. "Ever since we ended Dreamfall on a nail-biting cliffhanger, players have been rightfully demanding a sequel, and my deal with Funcom will finally make that possible. I'm extremely grateful to Funcom for this unique and exciting opportunity, and I can't wait to dive back into the universe I helped create more than a decade ago, and continue the story players have been waiting for these past six years."

More information about the upcoming title will be made available in the months to come.

Dreamfall: The Longest Journey was released to PC and Xbox in 2006 followed by a 2008 release on Xbox 360. It is the sequel to Funcom's 1999 point-and-click adventure game The Longest Journey.
