Dontnod, the studio behind Remember Me and Life Is Strange, is working on a new role-playing game with Focus Home Interactive, Vampyr.

As the Spanish flu spreads through the city, players must make their way through the chaos using melee attacks, vampire skills, and firearms as they search for live-saving prey. Any character met can be a victim, and each follows their own routine, which will allow players to decide if they want to trap them to ensure another meal or let them go if their death would cause too much of a commotion.
