Life is Strange not only gets a new part with True Colors, the earlier titles are also supposed to be optimized and reissued as part of the Remastered Collection. However, those remasters are now much longer in coming.
Square Enix has now officially announced that the originally planned release can no longer be achieved in the current year 2021. The new Life is Strange: True Colors will be available from September 10th, as previously planned, but they don’t want to put even more pressure on the development team. The new part is on time on all platforms except the switch; for the Nintendo console there should only be a slight delay.
This fact and the difficult working conditions due to the pandemic have now moved Square Enix to postpone the release of the Life is Strange Remastered Collection to early 2022; so you will have to wait a few months longer. A specific new date was not initially given.
Originally the remaster should have appeared together with the new part Life is Strange: True Colors. With regard to the latest series shoot, there is also more good news to compensate: The Wavelengths DLC with a focus on Steph Gingrich should be available just a few weeks later from September 30th.
Ultimate Edition buyers of Life is Strange: True Colors who qualify for the remasters will be able to download them as soon as they appear.
