Unravel‘s creative director Martin Sahlin has confirmed that he is “focusing on other things” and has no plans for a third Unravel game at present.
During an interview with Sector, Sahlin downplayed the likelihood of a new title following on from the platformer series, though refused to rule it out entirel:
“As for other stories, I don’t know. Stories I like to tell are lived and discovered. That is, the experiences you have experienced and can be transformed into a story. And that depends on what’s going on. Now I’m focusing on other things, but that doesn’t mean we’ll never see more Unravel games in the future. If we find a story that unfolds, then yes.”
From Sahlin’s response he clearly has not ruled out another Unravel game in the future, but the series is a project incredibly close to his heart. In fact, during a lecture at Game Access he revealed that anger helped him to create the first game concept.
The two puzzle-platformers were developed by Swedish company Coldwood Interactive and published by Electronic Arts’s indie branch won critical acclaim and multiple awards, and was followed by a surprise sequel that was announced and released during E3 last year.
