[Update] EA Signs Coldwood For Unravel Sequel

Update: EA has confirmed that Coldwood is working on a sequel to Unravel.

Original Story:

At EA’s Investor Day this morning, the publisher announced that it is continuing its investment in smaller projects. To that end, it is extending its deal with Unravel developer Coldwood.

Details on the next game haven’t yet been announced, but EA executive vice president Patrick Söderlund references the way gamers have attached to Unravel’s Yarny both in and out of the game. “At EA, we love working with creative and passionate development teams, in our own studios and our partners,” Söderlund writes. “Which is why I’m very pleased to announce that we’ve signed a new agreement with Coldwood to work with them on their next project.”

Our Take
EA continues to discuss Unravel as a “very un-EA game.” Söderlund told us at E3 2015 (right after Unravel was announced), that this is a new direction for the publisher. We’re interested to see how, a year later, EA ramps up its efforts with smaller titles at E3.
