A second season of supernatural teen mystery Life Is Strange is certainly a possibility according to the game's directors, but it's unlikely to star the same characters as season one. Speaking to IBTimes UK Michel Koch and Raoul Barbet jointly spoke of the possibility of a follow-up season to their surprise, runaway success.

Asked whether the episodic game would be best left as a one-off, the pair, who answered questions jointly via email said: "A second season would work but the story of Max and Chloe is told, their character arcs are closed. Whichever choice the player made [in the finale], Max reached the end of her coming-of-age story, now she has grown up."

"She made her pivotal decision and the player helped to create her character, her feelings, her relationships... we like to think that we did our job as storytellers and game designers, we helped the players to meet their own personal version of Max and Chloe."

Life Is Strange tells the story of Max Caulfield, an 18-year-old student who discovers she has an ability to rewind time. As a mystery engulfs Arcadia Bay, Max is reunited with her childhood friend Chloe and the pair reconnect, all the while searching for a missing girl.

The game has been one of the big success stories of 2015. The five-episode series, which began in January and ended in October, will be released in full on disc on 19 January 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
