Tornquist will be developing the game with his newly formed studio Red Thread Games. Funcom, which owns the rights to The Longest Journey, will license it to Red Thread Games to allow Dreamfall Chapters to be an official part of the series.

Tornquist, who was previously game director for Funcom's massive multiplayer online game The Secret World, will also continue to work with the studio as creative director in an advisory role.

"I'm very excited to finally have the opportunity to continue the 'The Longest Journey' saga," Tornquist said.

"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."

The game will be independently funded by Red Thread Games, with Tornquist tweeting earlier today that the studio has received $175,000 in funding from the Norwegian Film Institute to get the game started in production.

Tornquist also added in an interview with Rock, Paper, Shotgun that he plans to do a Kickstarter campaign for the game once a working prototype is complete.

The Longest Journey first released on PC in 2000, and was followed by the 2006 sequel Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

Dreamfall Chapters is now entering pre-production for PC at Red Thread Games.
