DLC development has become a standard for most video games these days, but a title it will not have (unless the plans do not change) is the new RPG Dontnod, developers of Remember me, Entitled Vampyr. Cedric Lagarrigue, president of the Focus Home Interactive publisher, said MCVUK that the intent is to publish a complete game and then, if it sells well, go ahead with a sequel.

This is a purely solitary experience, we did not plan DLC. We would prefer, if the game's welcome justifies it, to think of a sequel. We and Dontnod already have ideas, because there are so many incredible things to offer in such a universe.

In terms of budget, Vampyr is in fact a triple A of indie games and "the universe, the theme and the quality of the game allow it to exist in stores next to blockbusters." The fact that the PC is a "less focused retail" platform, thanks to the advent of Steam and other digital platforms, is an important factor in allowing low budget games to succeed, something that is good for everyone: "Players want new experiences, originality, and less general direction," he said. "There is room for blockbusters, but players are always passionate about different experiences."
