I took a closer look at the second screenshot and it looks like a graveyard with multiple spirits at once, so it looks like they've redesigned the chapter entirely, even in its gameplay. That definitely explains the six months.

Curios about the changes, I hope they're for the better and I don't miss the original version.

It looks that only Book One was altered *this time*
According to a tweet by Ragnar, further changes will be made consequently with the console release. So there *will* be an "ultimate" version after all!

Well we always knew they were going to add and tweak stuff after release. Terms like "ultimate" and "complete" and "director's cut" get thrown around but the terms don't really mean anything out of context.

Yeah but after 6 months I was afraid they tweaked more and went ahead with the ultimate version to be released together with Book Five

I suppose they want to make the best possible impression at the start of the game, hence the tweaking of Book 1.  I'd prefer some tweaks to a couple of the more annoying puzzles (most ppl I think have the same 1-2 puzzles in mind) to make them more palatable.

Ragnar was pretty clear about wanting to improve the pacing of Book 2. So Book 1 won't be the only part which will be changed.

Good to have evidence that the Book(s) have been reworked before release of Book 5. So much to look forward to. And so soon now. Thanks a lot. :)


Always think twice when you hear "news" from unconfirmed sources.

Back to the backup plan then. Erika, I'll take you up on that offer in a few years.

"Presses F to pay respects" 

 

Well, at least the franchise won't be milked dry like say Assassin's Creed was. But even so, it does feel like we should get a proper conclusion to April's story, as good as the next book may be, it can't be everything that a whole game was supposed to be.

I hope Ragnar takes a break from the TLJ universe for a few years to replenish his creative juices, then adapts TLJH into a graphic novel. I'd prefer a game to a graphic novel, but if the game isn't going to happen, it would still be nice to have the entire saga tied up with a bow on top.

This is pretty major and awful news. I'm surprised it hasn't gotten more attention. It's nice of Ragnar to be straightforward about it (think if people had seen this tweet about Half-Life 3 many years ago...), but it would be great to get a little more information on why it won't get made (at least anywhere in the reasonably near future). Lack of creative desire? Poor DC sales? The story is sufficiently concluded in DC that it's no longer crucial? Want to move to another medium, eventually?

Well...not entirely unsurprising news about TLJH, but still...:(

I agree that it might be good, if possible, to hear a little more about why the decision got made. And about whether continuation of the story in prose or comics form (instead of video game format) might be possible.

But, but...there's a Unity 5 model of April in her seafarin' clothes, so I do think we'll get some closure for TLJ-April in Book 5, which is what I'm looking for. :)

They've been working on Dreamfall Chapters for four years. It's where their hearts and souls are now, and they can't immediately pick up on another story in that universe. They have other stories to tell, like Draugen and Svalbard. It needs to settle.

 

I know we'll get the story somehow some day, and I have faith it can even be a game, but we'd have to wait til the 2030s in that case.

 

Because of all this, they did put enough in DFC to conclude the story and, as Ragnar said, fuel another two decades' worth of speculation and theories. He said "Play Book Five first!" in regards to "what about April?".

Let me just throw this out there: if Funcom announces a TLJ MMO in the next few months, I'd much rather play the MGS3 pachinko machine. >__>
