is an upcoming adventure game in development by Benoît Sokal and due for release in December 1. 2016.
It is to be published by Anuman Interactive under the Microïds brand and is a continuation to the Syberia series, which containssteampunk elements and follows the adventures of American lawyer Kate Walker as she travels across Europe and Russia.
On 1 April 2009, Microïds announced that Syberia III was being developed and aimed to be released on PC and PlayStation 3 in June 2010 as a real-time 3D game. The company had then stated that the game would miss its original June 2010 release date because negotiations with Benoît Sokal were underway and the takeover by Anuman. On 17 April 2010, another press release was issued, explaining that the PC version will be released, but the PS3 version may not, due to problems with Sony. Microïds had also asked that fans of Syberia send them emails of support for the game.
In an interview given in February 2011, Benoît Sokal revealed that work on the game had not even started due to a lack of funding. He says that he would want to use real-time 3D graphics comparable to those of Assassin's Creed. However, that would require a very large budget. He states that developing the game on the same engine as Syberia I and II is not an option because that would lead to a commercial failure.
On 26 November 2012, Microïds revealed on their Facebook page that Benoît Sokal had officially signed a contract withAnuman to write the story of Syberia III and that official development had started. Additionally the project is to be overseen by Elliot Grassiano, the original founder of Microïds. On 21 August 2013, it was announced that the game had gone into production.
The game's first screenshots were shown on 13 August 2014, and the stated release was given as of 2015 on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android platforms. On 19th May 2016 Microids released a "Making of Syberia 3" video on YouTube in various languages, including English.
