Retro Classic Flashback is Getting (Another) Sequel
In a surprise announcement, retro “cinematic platformer” Flashback is getting another sequel. Rejoice!
Originally released in 1992, Flashback was a game that was way ahead of its time. It really was a cinematic experience that shouldn’t have existed back in 1992, which probably helped it become such an iconic sci-fi game.
Flashback did get a sequel in 1995 called Fade to Black which released on the MS-DOS, then later for the PS1 in 1996. However, if memory serves me correctly, it wasn’t a very good game.
Then we got a remake of the original game for PS3 and Xbox 360 published by Ubisoft in 2013, but that wasn’t very good either.
Flashback 2 is in production and will launch in 2022 on consoles and PC. Stay tuned for more information.

So hopefully this sequel will finally do the original game justice because it deserves nothing less. Thankfully the lead developer of the original game Paul Cuisset will be leading the charge once more in Flashback 2 (so I assume we’re officially ignoring Fade to Black now).
No exact platforms have been confirmed, other than PC and console, and the game is set to release in 2022.
