Originally announced at E3 2021, Life is Strange: Remastered Collection has been given a release date of February 1, 2022. The first game sold over 3 million copies since its release in 2015, and while the second game received mixed reviews, it maintains a very positive rating on Steam. The remastered collection was meant to launch alongside Life is Strange: True Colors, which recently experienced some controversy, but it had been delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.
