Thirty years after the release of 1992's Flashback: The Quest for Identity, Microids Studio Lyon's direct sequel is scheduled for release in November, overseen by Delphine Software designer Paul Cuisset.

Flashback designer Thierry Perreau also returns for the sequel. The science fiction adventure title will feature a semi-open world subdivided into five distinct, interconnected levels. Single-player 2.5D sidescrolling gameplay unfolds across jungle, city, GBI Academy, mutant village, and morph ship environs.

Music for the game is by Raphaël Gesqua, the composer of the score for Flashback for Amiga. A digital edition of the soundtrack is planned for inclusion with the limited edition physical release. Flashback Tribute Album "Music For Cloned Memory" is distributed by Microids Records, reimagining compositions from the game complemented by original synth-wave and electro tracks.

Flashback 2 is due out on November 16th for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Series X|S consoles, along with Windows via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store.
