LBA 3 announcement on a french site? True or Fake?

Hi everyone here's the article. There's a lot of mistakes in it which looks like a fake to me. Do anyone else have an idea?

http://gamewave.fr/little-big-advent...-sur-gamewave/

I've asked Didier and waiting on his answer.

I really hate to say it, but it looks too fake to me. If they really were going to do it, they would have put lots more effort into the article - besides, it's too short. A single photograph and several sentences is not going to cut it.

I'd wish it were legit, but believe me - I could be wrong. Hopefully it is real, but wouldn't you think there's more to the article? Perhaps it's on another page?

Then again, I don't speak French. But, I'd learn some for sure.

Edit: Just translated the page. Oh man, I hope it REALLY will happen.

Fellow discord user DarkSpartan found the stream where Fred himself is talking. Unfortunately i can't understand french, but maybe you people could translate the main parts. https://www.twitch.tv/gamewavetv/v/116239990

Since i can't understand french, i'm not 100% this is the one he would make the announcement.

Starts at about 5:35:55

According to translations i've got for the stream itself, it looks more like he talked about the possibility of a scenario for LBA 3, rather than a confirmation for it.

That's what i heard atleast, i haven't heard a full translation of the stream.

I didn't listen to the whole interview, and the twitch player is very buggy/laggy on my browser, I clicked on every minute of the video, I may have missed something but here's what I got :
Around 5:58, the journalist asks about LBA3, Raynal says that he really wants to make it, there is already a scenario, he knows that the game will have 3 playable characters, but there's nothing planned right now. So nothing new compared to other interviews.
In the end, the last question was something like "what would be for you the ultimate, masterpiece game that you have not already made ?", Raynal, after thinking and saying "I can't really say 2dark", said "definitely LBA3 !".
After Raynal left, the journalists said "I didn't dream, he just announced LBA3 ? How will we announce it ?".

I think that they were not already aware of the fact that the LBA3 scenario is already written and they took this for an announcement he is working on it.

Sorry.

Edit : to be more precise, around 5:58, Raynal explains that he wrote three different version of the scenario, along with Didier Chanfray, the last version wwas written two year ago. He would like to make LBA3 to end the series and closes the questions like "why Funfrock is so evil ?". He says that the publishers started talking about it through the years, and for LBA1 it was already difficult to bring the project to the publishers because of its hybrid natures (cartoon style but dark theme). He really dreams about making the game to end the story. You would play the three characters, Twinsen Zoe and Arthur. The game would be a bit different from LBA1 and LBA2 because it will be "updated" with our context, with the subjects of our current lives (which are different now and then).

Edit 2 : Also, he does speak about Ubisoft but not in the context of LBA3, it was about a past project. It's near the end of the interview...

Yeah, it was my first thought too...

He even says "Il n'y a rien de prévu pour l'instant" ("Nothing planned for now").

Yeah, I think the journalists who made the article were staying in the back and probably didn't pay much attention because they got a lot of things he said confused.

Polaris: "And what is a guitar doing in the middle of an asteroïd anyway?"
sgk: Think of it this way: it's like a message in a bottle. In our world, we put a message inside a bottle to protect it while it travels through the oceans to reach some other island. In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

Thanks Kasia for the tweet link.

It's what I though it was. Clickbaiting.

They even changed their article and re-write it.

Well this website is a shame. Hope they read this and see this :

Clickbait brings you statistics but results in angry people that gives yourself a bad reputation. Good articles gives statistics that is actually linked to satisfied readers. This is what these guys should try to do.

Nice way to get some 2dark attention. I am sure Fred will be pleased.
