[Correction: Developer Dontnod has said on Twitter that previous claims of a delay, apparently by a Square Enix representative, are not entirely accurate. The studio says the project remains "on track" for release in March.]

[Update 2: Square Enix has issued a statement confirming that the project remains on track. It writes:

“Dear friends of Life is Strange,

"We’ve been asked to clear up the question of when Episode 2 will be released since there have been rumours of a delay. We would like to assure everyone that development is on track and we’re looking to release it before the end of March.

"Thanks for all your support so far - we’ve loved reading all your feedback and comments. As a show of gratitude and something to enjoy before the game is available here’s a piece of concept art for Episode 2: Out of Time.”]

Original story follows:

The second episode of Life Is Strange, Square Enix's applauded interactive drama, has been delayed until further notice.

Following the release of the fist episode in January, which GameSpot's praised in its review, Square Enix was expected to ship the second episode mid-March. However, a spokesperson for the publisher has told Destructoid that the project has been delayed and could not provide an estimate on a new release date.

When contacted by GameSpot, the publisher was unavailable to discuss the matter.

Life is Strange tells the story of Maxine Caufield, a senior photography student who discovers she can rewind time. The story is planned to unfiold across five episodes, all released throughout 2015.

Its developer, the Paris-based studio Dontnod, has built the game for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC.

Every new chapter will build and evolve on the choices you made in the past episode, in a manner akin to Telltale's games such as The Walking Dead and Fables: The Wolf Among Us.
