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.

  1. Absolutely loved the first game, it’s incredibly touching and poignant. The sequel was more of the same, with another lovely story that wasn’t as impactful, but it was a pleasure to live it through anyway.

    I would really like to see them exploring other stories but using the same side-scrolling platform concept. Between them and Playdead, there are no better platformers out there. Except Ori, perhaps.
