Life is Strange: True Colors is still on track to launch next month, but those who were hoping to replay the original game and Before the Storm as part of the Life is Strange Remastered Collection will have to wait a little bit longer, as the compilation has been delayed into next year.
News of this comes from a post on the official Life is Strange Twitter account, which cited issues with working from home during the pandemic as the root cause of the delay as well as a desire to take pressure off the team with True Colors just a month away. However, the team will also be revealing the first look at Life is Strange: True Colors’ DLC titled “Wavelengths,” which is set to launch shortly after the main game.
The full statement reads as follows:
We have some important updates for you on our upcoming release dates.
After Life is Strange: True Colors releases on September 10, we’re happy to announce that the Life is Strange: Wavelengths DLC, starring Steph Gingrich, will release on September 30.
We will be revealing a first look via new trailer tomorrow!
However, due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection.
For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection for all platforms – PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Stadia, and Switch – until Early 2022.
We hope you understand.
Thank you for your patience and overwhelming support!
