Unravel developer Coldwood Interactive has signed a publishing agreement with Electronic Arts for its next game, EA announced today.

"We could not be more excited to continue working with Martin Sahlin and the great team at Coldwood, and to see the next adventure they bring to life," said Patrick Söderlund, executive vice president of EA Studios.
Update: Reached for comment, a representative for EA confirmed to Polygon that the agreement between Coldwood and EA "will be for the next Unravel."
Didn't expect that. Unravel was quite weak.

EDIT: Happy for them, though. I do think it had great potential.

It was well received because it was beautiful and great. OP is out of the loop.

Get the game and fall in love. This is great news.

That's cool I guess. Hope they keep the audio and visuals top-notch just as in the first and refine the gameplay / puzzles.

Really fun "puzzle" gum with beautiful visuals. Felt like Spider-Man swinging around as Yarny. I'll be there day 1 for a sequel.

I don't think i am, but i do think the game had great potential. I bought it day one, too.

Hope the sequel achieves it.

This game is kinda like Ori and the Blind Forest in style right? I have only seen this game at E3 I think. It kinda looked very beautiful and interesting, but just reading this thread, most people didn't like it, maybe they can improve then with the sequel.

I adored Unravel. The gameplay might have been simple and it didn't really do anything new after the first two or three levels but I still had a great time with it. That last level, man. Emotions. I wanted to get all of the achievements but after one bugged and didn't unlock, I haven't gone back. Maybe I should try again.

Will definitely be there for a sequel.

It's only like Ori in that it's a sidescroller, doesn't play much like it at all.

Unravel is my second favourite game of the year so far... Absolutely loved it. It hit all the right checkmarks for indie puzzle games: 1) Great visuals and art style, 2) Heartfelt/obscure story, and 3) Really satisfying puzzles.

I will definitely be getting Unravel 2.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Kinda hoped they would be one of those studios who always work on something new, but i cant fault them for for a safer and proven approach. Lets see how the sequel works out for the, EA seems to be satisfied so far.

lol @ negativity in this thread
I'm pretty sure i shouldn't have started the thread saying that lol

I do enjoyed the game, just thought it falled short from the amazing potential it had. I'm hoping they can do that for the sequel.

Don't know why people are suggesting the negativity is unique. The OT for the game dropped like a rock after like a day or two.

Day fucking one. Unravel was a breath of fresh air - here's hoping they can keep the cohesiveness and overall feeling.

I really liked the look and feel of the game, but the actual gameplay was sorta shallow. It felt like they held back a little in that respect. I look forward to a sequel, but I want to see them go for it a bit more.

I enjoyed Unravel and it evoked memories of Limbo. But unfortunately, like Limbo, I never felt the urge to go back and revisit in the way that I would with a Mario game for example. I hope there is more re playability in the sequel, secrets and easter eggs.

Here are screenshots from my playthrough back from when the game first launched. I bought the game one day one and it was worth the full $20. Fantastic game. The screenshots below show the game is really beautiful, and the game has solid and fluid game play to back it up.

Good news. I enjoyed the first one and i would buy a new Unravel game without any doubt. Hopefully they learned from making the first game and will make the second game even better.
