Dontnod Entertainment — the developer for the Capcom-published action game — has entered judicial reorganisation. The timing’s a bit weird, as Remember Me has just been announced as one of the games that PlayStation Plus members in the US will get for free in February.

Update: In an interview with GameIndustry International, Dontnod CEO Oskar Guilbert says that “There is no bankruptcy, Dontnod is not in bankruptcy.” Guilbert goes on to explain that the studio’s finances are being retooled under judicial supervision:

“We are in something called in France ‘judicial reorganisation’ which allows us to re-adapt our production pipeline to the new situation. Because as you know we finished a game called Remember Me for Capcom which was out in June 2013, last year. This game, I think it’s important to mention, is number two in terms of downloads on PlayStation Plus in Europe, so it’s a big success on the digital side at least.”

“We started new projects and those new projects need some investment and we decided to resize the company in order to match these new needs. That’s why we needed judicial reorganisation.

  • What ever happens, I hope we get a sequel or at least a similar game from them. Remember Me is probably one of my top games of the last generation, would be great to get more of it.

    • It’s pretty fantastic… for a sequel I’d really hope they could open it up a little. As it is, the game is a bit over-directed. You see that tasty world locked off from your invisible walls and really kinda wish you could get out into it.

  • I just recently beat this game as part of my PS+ backlog. I’m kinda with the reviewers on it, its not a bad game just not that good.

  • I’d rate it as one of those 7/10 games that are really fun. Not perfect, but enjoyable as heck anyway (I’d rate it along the lines of The Saboteur & WET).

    I agree with @transientmind though – it’d be nice to have been able to explore New Paris. Fantastic art direction that we never got a chance to examine.

  • I wonder if the reason it’s number 2 in terms of downloads in Europe is that it was just recently a free game on PSPlus? I wanted to like it, but it’s a game that ironicaly you play once and forget about. It had some good ideas, but unfortunately they’ve all been done better in other games. Still, it’d be nice if Dontnod (who seem to have an obsession with palindromes) were able to learn from their mistakes and make a better sequel.
