The French software publisher Anuman Interactive has announced a new deal with author Benoit Sokal and confirmed that the game “Syberia III” will be developed and released.
Adventure game enthusiasts everywhere have been excitedly looking forward to the potential release of another game in the Syberia series, previously developed by Microïds studio. Since the acquisition of Microïds by Anuman Interactive and the internal rebranding, it’s been unsure whether they would continue the PC development of Dracula 4 and Syberia 3, both announced back in 2010. This news however is a sigh of relief for gamers everywhere as Microïds are looking to have Syberia III finished and published sometime in the 2014/2015 window as well as other potential ports of their games.
“After two long years of waiting for the fans, with Benoit writing the script and Elliot joining our team, “Syberia” has truly entered its production phase. With its incredible feel and the sheer quality of the game, Syberia has carved out a special place for itself in gamers’ hearts. They are more than ever expecting the next instalment. Today, fans of the series and adventure games enthusiasts have at last been rewarded for the patience,”
The author, Benoit Sokal, is working as Artistic Director on the Syberia saga also adds :
“I’m very pleased to be creating another Kate Walker adventure and working with Anuman Interactive’s teams on the project. 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.”
