"Due to the ongoing challenges of the worldwide pandemic, we want to alleviate any additional pressure on the Life is Strange team by giving more time between the release of Life is Strange: True Colors and the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection," reads a statement shared to the official Life is Strange Twitter account. "For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of the Life is Strange: Remastered Collection for all platforms."
