Those looking to catch the premiere live will want to tune into the Square Enix Twitch channel once the premiere kicks off at 10 a.m. PDT. You can check out the embed below as well.

This edition of Square Enix Presents is expected to bring news about the next installment of the Life is Strange series, as well as a lineup of new trailers and announcements for the company’s upcoming titles. We'll also see new information about games like Outriders—which is set to release at the start of April—as well as the Tomb Raider series, which is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Other games on the docket include new Square Enix Montreal games, Just Cause Mobile, and Balan Wonderworld.

It is unclear how long the presentation will last exactly, though tweets from influencers like DansGaming seem to suggest it will only run for around 30 minutes. That seems like a very short amount of time to announce a bunch of stuff, but we have seen companies like Nintendo and even Sony do rapidfire announcement events in the past.

Nevertheless, you can catch all of the action right here if you’re free when the premiere kicks off. If, for some reason, you can’t tune in live, then you can also keep your eyes on our Square Enix and Life is Strange pages, where we’ll be reporting on any new announcements and details about Square’s upcoming titles.

          I still haven't played before the storm so excited about this, I'd probably rebuy and replay LiS as well.

        Note: This is now being done by Deck Nine - no sign of Dontnod

          For those that missed this: Dontnod got Tencent'd back in January (a minority stake), and immediate a rumor that Square Enix threw this game fully into Deck Nine's hands came out right after that. Dontnod, prior to that, had been very clear that LiS was a Squeenex IP, so I bet there's still a lot of Dontnod DNA in this game but they can't really say that now.

            Deck Nine confirmed in 2018 they were working on another story game with Square Enix, I have no doubts this was always their project.

            I don't see how they'd completely switch developers in seven weeks and still announce it for a release in 6 months. The title is also very deliberately not Life is Strange 3.

              Just random speculation: I was looking for cover art for True Colors, so checked SE's site:

              Dontnod is still listed there, so I still wonder if they were doing work up to a point, then were pulled off, but they can't be fully removed from the game at this point.

                Interesting. I think they're listed at the bottom because they're still the developer of original Life is Strange 1, of which the remaster is included in the Ultimate Edition; and Life is Strange 2, which can be ordered on the same page.

                Maybe Dontnod got pulled off the Remaster? Wouldn't be surprised if they shared some of their UE4 tech with Deck Nine initially.

                I'm gonna speculate and say all the new tech updates in the Remaster hint at the games being ported to the UE4-based True Colors (or LiS2?) platform. It sounds worthy of a replay.

                  It could simply be that. I'm sure we will learn more in the next six months. But I'm a bit less concerned learning per a different from from Ozzie that Dontnod did want to move on from LiS.

                    Fingers crossed all parties involved have come out of this in a positive way.

                    A Dontnod shared universe likely won't happen. And if everyone could return to making games stand on their own merits I'd be very happy.

                    Side rant:
                    Dungeon Siege III was a really good game, but the forced association with a mediocre copycat franchise undid it. Am I still sour? Absolutely. Major IP holders, especially Square Enix, are really bad at reading the market.

                    Forcing so many games into a single franchise might have been okay for a phenomenal fluke like Final Fantasy, but the markets have shifted in a way I don't trust SE to actually understand.
