In reference to the long development and release window between episodes, Dontnod issued a statement, saying "The Life is Strange series is a project close to all of our hearts and one for which we do not want to rush development and thereby fail to meet the benchmark of quality and emotional impact that you, our players, deserve. This is why we so far have not announced an official release date [for episode two]".
On 21 March 2019, release dates for episode 3-5 were announced: Episode 3 on 9 May 2019, Episode 4 on 22 August 2019, and Episode 5 on 3 December 2019
