Dontnod has six games in production

Life is Strange maker Dontnod has six games in the works.

That's according to its CEO Oskar Guilbert (pictured), who told GamesBeat that it has a number of different projects in development right now. This is in part due to Dontnod opening a brand new studio in Montréal.

“Our studio is growing, with six games in production now,” Guilbert said. “Our recent releases have been very successful in terms of press reception and player reception. I’m very proud.”

He continued: “For us, [a Montreal studio] was really important because we obviously wanted to be closer to our players in North America, but also because the biggest part of our player base is in North America and our games like Life Is Strange take place in North America. Montreal is also one of the biggest video game ecosystems in the world.”

The firm recently teamed up with Microsoft for the launch of Tell Me Why, while it is also partnering with Bandai Namco on Twin Mirror. In April, Dontnod reported an operating revenue increase of 18.6 per cent year-on-year
