Microids has announced Flashback 2 for consoles and PC. It is a sequel to the 1992 science-fiction platformer and will launch in 2022.

"We are super excited to offer the fans a sequel to this masterpiece of the French video game history," said Microids CEO Stephane Longeard. "At Microids, we thrive for delivering projects highlighting the craft of talented individuals. 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."

Flashback creator Paul Cuisset added, "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."

Yes played the original on Amiga and Fade to Black on PS1 ,this sounds a bit revisionist but if it's a story he's had in mind for decades he may feel it's more representative of Flashback than Fade to Black was . also a pity that Jean Giraud being no longer with us means no Moebius cover art.

Not having played the Flashback remake I don't know if my concerns have already been somewhat allayed or not in regards to my usual worry about how games of that era coming from a completely different gaming landscape don't always translate well to the present and this can be compounded by the fact that even changing to a more modern template is by no means a certain cure and may mean losing the essence that made it great in the first place.
Having the creator in charge helps but is no guarantee that this will be the case so fingers crossed.
