Benoît Sokal back in Microids?

Postby stone » Sun 10 Jun 2012 20:22

Hello all you happy Syberia series fans :)

I'm just re-playing Syberia 2 for n-th time :) and on this occasion I did fast reseach for Syberia news and come across some saying that Benoît Sokal is back in Microids. The news about this should be on Microids [url=facebook acount]http://www.facebook.com/microids[/url]. Since I don't have one (and I'm not planning to have one, I know - this is strange ;) ) could someone check if there is such information. If yes, this could great information concerning Syberia 3, on both time of release and quality of the game.

I couldn't find any information about it on our forum. If I missed I'm sorry, just give me the link to the topic.

Ha, that's the good news then :)

Sadly, as I noticed, only Microids site at the moment is shop webpage. No news, no other information. :(

You may find this link interesting from May 31, 2012.
http://ifanzine.com/interview-eric-nguyen-marketing-director-anuman-interactive/
Microïds as a studio was created back in the 1980s. Over time, it released several famous adventure game licenses, such as Syberia and Still Life. However, Microïds as a studio no longer exists. Microïds as a brand, and all its licenses, were bought by Anuman Interactive in 2009. Historically Anuman Interactive is a French publisher, but we are now providing products worldwide through our four major brands. Microïds is one of them. As a reminder, those labels are: Microïds (for adventure games only), Microïds – Games For All (it gathers mainstream video game activity, except adventure games), Anuman Interactive (for software and applications) and last but not least, Home Design 3D, exclusively dedicated to Home Design 3D products, which have been developed within the company.

As far as Microïds games are concerned, today we collaborate intimately with a studio that works exclusively on our Microïds adventure games, and within Anuman itself, two project managers are dedicated to the Microïds collection of games, plus a sales team and a PR Manager.

Eric Nguyen is the current Marketing Director for Anuman Interactive. Unfortunately, I found no news about another Syberia game there.

Yes, this is interesting.
Good thing is that the brand Microids still exists, and it is dedicated to adventure games.
By the way, it would be good to know who administrates Syberia website :)
