We have been waiting for the next episode for Life Is Strange 2 for a bit now and last we heard it was coming in January at some point. Nothing had been set in stone as DontNod tried to get the game to a place where it would meet our ever-demanding standard when it comes to our games. Especially with an IP like Life Is Strange, we are going to be critical and thankfully, Square Enix let them take that extra time. Now we are back with a new update and word that we will be playing this second episode on our PS4, Xbox One, or PC on January 24th. Yes, we have a release date and it is not too far off.
Weirdly, to go along with this announcement we also have a new live action trailer for Life Is Strange 2. Not something I was expecting, but it is what it is. It does at least use the voice actor as an actual actor as they recreate the way the first episode ended in a live action way. That and give us a very small tease as to what to expect in the second episode of Life Is Strange 2 in January. Not exactly what I wanted for the game, but we will all have to take it and deal with it for now, as it is all that we have to go on. At least we have a date and a tease should be the solid takeaway here.

Did you figure that this episode for Life Is Strange 2 would land near the end of the month or did you hope it would have been at the start of the new year?
