According to a post on Funcom's website "Red Thread Games has licensed the rights to The Longest Journey universe from Funcom, and Tornquist will head-up development of Dreamfall Chapters, while serving in an advisory capacity on The Secret World

"I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the 'The Longest Journey' saga," said Tornquist. "Ever since we ended 'Dreamfall' on a nail-biting cliffhanger, players have been rightfully demanding a sequel, and my deal with Funcom will finally make that possible.

"I'm extremely grateful to Funcom for this unique and exciting opportunity, and I can't wait to dive back into the universe I helped create more than a decade ago, and continue the story players have been waiting for these past six years."

Red Thread Games has promised more details on Dreamfall Chapters in the coming months.

In August Funcom refocused on smaller games following disappointing early sales of The Secret World.
