The wait for the next episode of Life Is Strange 2 has been a long one and it looks like we will be waiting even longer for the third episode to drop out there in the wild. We now have the release date for that episode and it looks like DontNod plans to have it all ready for us on May 9th. That is quite a ways out there for those of us who have been captured by the story so far and want to keep going with it. It is made only worse when you think about how long we had to wait for the second episode to come out after it seemed like Life Is Strange 2 was going to be hitting releases rather quickly. Nonetheless, we have a date for it all now and know when we can pick it all up again.
To add to all of that, we also have the release schedule laid out for the rest of the season to go with this. Get ready to have a little bit of heartbreak as it looks like we will not be able to see the end of this season of Life Is Strange until the end of the year. The fourth episode is slated to drop on August 22nd barring any development issues. The final episode having the same caveat added in as we can look for that on December 3rd of this year as well. That is one hells of a break between each episode of Life Is Strange 2 that it almost seems like we should have been waiting for the full release instead of episodic. That or we will be forced to keep replaying each episode between the breaks so we do not forget where we were in the story.
Square Enix is excited to announce the release date for the third episode of the all-new five-episode season from Square Enix External Studios and Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet’s Life Is Strange team at DontNod.
Life Is Strange 2 Episode 3: ‘Wastelands’, will release on May 9, 2019, on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and Windows PC.

Falling in with a community of drifters on the fringes of society, the brothers are exposed to new experiences, encounter new friends and new challenges, and must confront much about themselves in the process. New relationships cause friction between the brothers and raise doubts about their unity. Can they stay together, or will their journey together end here?
