Thirty years following the release of 1992's Flashback: The Quest for Identity, Microids Studio Lyon has announced development is underway on a direct sequel, overseen by Delphine Software designer Paul Cuisset.

Music for Flashback 2 is by Raphaël Gesqua, the composer of the score for Flashback for Amiga. The following year, he wrote the score for the 16-bit side-scrolling platformer Mr. Nutz, available for streaming on Spotify. Flashback designer Thierry Perreau will also be returning for the sequel.

Microids' science fiction adventure title will center on single-player 2.5D sidescrolling gameplay, unfolding across jungle, city, GBI Academy, mutant village, and morph ship environs. Flashback 2 is scheduled for release in 2023 for PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and Windows via Steam.
