Frogwares Discusses Origins of SHERLOCK HOLMES in Brand-New CHAPTER ONE Developer Commentary

The Sinking City only debuted a year ago, but developer Frogwares is already promoting its next project — Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One — which serves as a prequel to the beloved detective's most famous stories.

Although Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One won't arrive until 2021, the studio shared some exciting details on the game during yesterday's Summer of Gaming event. For those unfamiliar with the new title starring the world's greatest detective, it's a cross-gen production that will be available on PS4, PS5, XBO, XSX, and PC.

According to the award-winning studio, Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One will put the spotlight on the titular character's very first case. Unfortunately for the beloved hero, said case will be a deeply personal one, as Sherlock will try to solve the mystery surrounding the death of his mother during the course of the game.

Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One is set on a sunny island in the Mediterranean, but it will still be a rather grim title. Quite interestingly, Chapter One is a coming-of-age story, told from the perspective of the anti-social genius who deeply believes that all criminals should be eliminated, at least at the beginning of the game.

Without further ado, be sure to learn more about Frogwares' upcoming game in the videos down below:

As Sherlock, your legacy is written by the decisions you make in this open world detective adventure. Deception, violence, and deduction are just a few resources in your arsenal—your mysterious companion and sounding board, Jon, is another. Whether you choose brute force to solve problems or stay one step ahead of your enemies by using your wits to spot vulnerabilities, you decide what each situation demands as you hone your investigative skills. It’s time to confront your past so you can become the legend you’re destined to be.

Sherlock Holmes Chapter One is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC (via Steam, GOG, and the EGS) in 2021.
