“Flashback 2” Coming to PC, Consoles in 2022
On Tuesday, Microids announced that a sequel to the 1992 sci-fi adventure game Flashback is in the works for both PC and consoles.
Aptly titled Flashback 2 (for now), very little was revealed about the project. However, the original game’s creator, Paul Cuisset, is back for the sequel.
Both Cuisset and Microids CEO Stéphane Longeard released statements on Flashback 2’s announcement.
According to Cuisset:
“Developing a sequel to Flashback is an idea I’ve had for a very long time. I can’t wait for players to discover the new adventures of Conrad B. Hart, a character created almost 30 years ago. With Microids, we are really aiming to please the fans of the original title while being appealing to any players with a weak spot for futuristic games.“
According to Longeard:
“We are super excited to offer the fans a sequel to this masterpiece of the French video game history… Paul Cuisset is a French hall of famer known internationally. We are proud to work hand in hand with him and his team on this project.”
The original Flashback (aka: Flashback: the Quest for Identity in the US) was released for a number of platforms in the mid 90s, from the SNES and SEGA Genesis to the 3DO and Atari Jaguar. The game rotoscoped animations similar to Another World (aka Out of This World), and required precise movements and meticulous planning to successfully traverse the 2D world.
Flashback 2 will release sometime in 2022.
