Adventure game series, Syberia, is getting a third game, French publisher, Anuman Interactive, announced this morning. Syberia III will be released under the Microids label sometime during the 2014-2015 period.
Microids developed the first two games in the series. The script for Syberia III will be written by Benoit Sokal, who wrote the first two games, and will also involve Microids founder, Elliot Grassiano, heading up the project. Benoit Sokal is also the “artistic director” on the Syberia series.
“I’m very pleased to be creating another Kate Walker adventure and working with Anuman Interactive’s teams on the project,” said Sokal. “I created the first two episodes of Syberia with Elliot, so I’m also really happy to be able to create this new one with him and illustrate the evolution of Anuman as a significant player in the adventure games industry.”
“With its incredible feel and the sheer quality of the game, Syberia has carved out a special place for itself in gamers’ hearts,” said Anuman Interactive General Manager, Stéphane Longeard. “They are more than ever expecting the next instalment.”
The Syberia games follow the exploits of lawyer Kate Walker as she travels to different parts of the world. No platforms have been announced for Syberia III, but Anuman Interactive say that the game will be on multiple platforms and is scheduled for release sometime during the 2014-2015 period.
