Schell Games released a trailer to announce I Expect You To Die 3: Cog In The Machine, the next installment of the award-winning I Expect You To Die franchise. The three-quel will be available to Agents across the globe in 2023 on Meta Quest and Steam.
In I Expect You To Die 3, players must outwit their most cunning adversary to date in this spy-themed VR puzzle series. Players will experience brand-new missions, wield complex gadgets, visit action-packed locales, engage with robots, harness the power of telekinesis, and wear custom attire as they dive back into the world of espionage.
“I Expect You To Die launched in 2016, and the franchise has expanded beyond our expectations thanks to the passion and hard work of the development teams and our amazing fans,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games. “We are truly grateful for the community of Secret Agents who supported the series over the years, and we’re excited to declassify top secret missions that anyone can enjoy.”
The three-quel is full of the classic I Expect You To Die hilarity. From cheeky jokes to multiple outrageous puzzle solutions, players familiar and new to the franchise will enjoy tactical challenges in tandem with light-hearted humor.
Building on the first game’s success, I Expect You To Die 2: The Spy And The Liar won several awards, including the Unity Awards, the NYX Game Awards, and the Telly Awards. The game was nominated for several prominent awards, including the Game Awards, Steam’s Game of the Year Awards, the D.I.C.E. Awards, SXSW, the Develop:Star Awards, and the VR Awards. Between I Expect You To Die and I Expect You To Die 2, the franchise has racked up 38 award wins or nominations. I Expect You To Die 2 also surpassed $1M in revenue less than a week after launch and continues to be a top seller on the VR charts for Meta Quest and Steam.
“We have some unique and exciting locations in I Expect You To Die 3, and we can’t wait to see how players creatively solve puzzles in a race to beat Dr. Zor at his own game,” said Matt Mahon, VP of Engineering and Project Director for I Expect You To Die 3. “Players new to the series can jump right in and have a great time, and returning fans will appreciate some fun nods to the prior games.”
