Little Nightmares 3 Chapters (Other Serious Games) Don’t Like Happy



Little Nightmares 3

Little Nightmares II was recently released. However, fans expecting the third installment may be dismayed to find that a Little Nightmares 3 is unlikely due to Tarsier Studios’ decision to focus its efforts on developing new IP. Little Nightmares II, like its predecessor, received widespread critical acclaim, and player feedback appears to be overwhelmingly positive.

The Sweden-based development studio began in support positions before launching the award-winning Little Nightmares in 2017, typically generating content for LittleBigPlanet projects. Since then, Tarsier has risen to new heights, as indicated by the studio’s acquisition by mega-publisher Embracer Group. However, given the publisher’s faith in Tarsier’s development team’s capacity to explore new areas, it appears that Embracer isn’t solely interested in Tarsier’s bit-sized horror experiences.

Embracer Group detailed future intentions in its earnings report (via IGN), noting that Tarsier Studios released Little Nightmares II to tremendous success under an external publisher – Bandai Namco – this quarter. On the other hand, Tarsier will “concentrate on establishing new IPs” in the future. Lars Wingefors, CEO of Embracer Group, confirmed this in a webcast, expressing his delight at the positive response to Little Nightmares II.

However, given that Bandai Namco owns the IP, Tarsier’s return to the series appears unlikely. As a result, Wingefors stated that now that Little Nightmares II has been released, the team would “transition over to build new IPs, which I’m extremely pleased about, and that was the main reason we made this acquisition a little over a year ago.”

Little Nightmares 3 will not be made with Tarsier Studios at the helm, according to neither Wingefors nor Embracer’s report. The focus on Bandai Namco’s ownership of the franchise, on the other hand, suggests that Little Nightmares will remain in Tarsier’s rearview mirror for the time being. And, as IGN points out, Bandai’s role as rights holder implies the beloved horror series might return in some form with a new team in control. However, whether or not the Japanese publisher is interested in doing so remains to be seen.

Despite the sequel’s release earlier this month, Tarsier isn’t through with Little Nightmares yet. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are currently in development, planned for a late 2021 release date. However, there are few details concerning the upgrades at the time of writing.
