Life Is Strange could be getting a prequel – with Chloe returning to Arcadia Bay
Life Is Strange could be getting a prequel that would see Chloe back in Arcadia Bay, if new leaked screenshots are to be believed.
The episodic game from Dontnod Entertainment was a sleeper hit that became something of a cult favourite – garnering a devoted following.
And besides getting a newly announced sequel, fans may be able to look forward to a prequel that focuses on central character Chloe Price.
The screenshots for the rumoured game were first published by GameKult who found the pictures on the website of developer Deck Nine Games.
The pictures have since been removed from the studio's site.

They added it will focus on the relationship between Chloe and Rachel Amber – two characters who are central to the storyline of Life Is Strange.
The NeoGAF user added that the project is being handled by Deck Nine Games as Dontnod are busy with other projects.
They also added that another character from Life Is Strange, Nathan Prescott, will also make a return.
All of these details tie into the leaked pictures of the alleged prequel, which have all been compiled in an Imgur gallery.

One picture of the unconfirmed Life Is Strange prequel shows designs for a young Chloe and another shows the coast of Arcadia Bay where the first game begins at.
One leaked photo also shows Blackwell Academy – where Life Is Strange's main character Max Caulfield studies.
While the unconfirmed prequel looks to focus on Chloe and Rachel, it would not be a surprise for Max to make an appearance in some shape or form.
She could potentially appear in a flashback – and with other returning characters it would be a surprise to fans if she did not appear.
Deck Nine Games were previously called Idol Minds – and the Studio worked on the classic PlayStation series Cool Boarders.
They also worked on the PS3's Ratchet & Clank Collection.
