“Life Is Strange’s” final episode has a release date as long as the game is ready to be played.
The expected release date of “Life Is Strange’s” final episode “Polarized” is scheduled on Oct. 20 and that came as a surprise to fans of the game. According to a post on Square Enix, a release date isn’t usually announced until the game is 100% ready.
However, Producer Luc Baghadoust said “…in the spirit of Max’s birthday (today) we wanted to let you know early that we are aiming to release Episode 5 ‘Polarized’ on October 20.”
Max, for those who do not know, is the protagonist of the “Life Is Strange” game series.
He continued saying, “Many things can change in the lead up to the release but the team are working really hard to try and hit this date. We know the wait may be a bit longer than some of you were hoping for but we want to ensure Episode 5 is the best it can be.”
Polygon reported that the first episode of “Life is Strange” premiered back in January and has done a bi-monthly release schedule from then on. In July, the game series had already sold a million copies with over 1.2 million unique players.
Those interested in playing the game can do so on Playstation 3, Playstation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
