Following the news that Tarsier Studios is working on a new IP, the developer has confirmed they’re done with the Little Nightmare series.
The Swedish developer confirmed in a statement that Little Nightmares II is the last game in the series for them. It’s worth pointing out that Bandai Namco, who own the IP, are “energized” to keep making more games in the series.
“For the last 6 years, our mission at Tarsier Studios has been to create mesmerizing worlds,” Tarsier CEO Andreas Johnsson said (via IGN). “Little Nightmares was our first attempt and was a huge success. I personally love how Little Nightmares has gathered fans around the world over the course of the last 4 years. From the fan art, extensive fan theories and genuine reactions, it all has been amazing to witness. Our collaboration with Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has been extremely satisfying, they listened to our creative vision and took our crazy ideas and ambitions to heart.
“That being said, it is bitter sweet to announce that we are leaving the world of Little Nightmares behind us. Little Nightmares will always be dear to us at the studio. Since being acquired by the Embracer Group in December 2019, it is now time for us to embark on a new chapter, create new IPs and explore new worlds. Personally I am very excited to see what our studio creates and counting down the days until we can welcome our fans.”
Little Nightmares II is available on Windows PC (via GOG, and Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Google Stadia for $29.99 USD. The game will also have a free upgrade to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2021.
