Blood Remake Rejected By Atari

The planned remake of retro shooter Blood will not be happening after all. Monolith Productions founder Jace Hall revealed this week that Atari, the company that owns the rights to the game, has declined to continue the project. (Blood, PC)

F**k you Atari. This was going to be given for free. Just keep on sitting on an IP and doing nothing with it.

They still exist?

Who? Atari? You mean the company that filed for bankruptcy a few weeks ago? Yeah. They are still kickin around.

That was my immediate reaction, too. This would be a great franchise to reboot! I need a key. Classic! I was hoping for this or Darkwatch...

Gotta love Jace Hall. Atari on the other hand is a completely irrelevant company these days. They have completely mismanaged their brand as a whole, and have completely missed out on opportunities over the last two generations to reinvigorate pretty much all of their IPs. The people that have been running this company for the last 20 years have been completely incompetent. I have a career as a commercial door salesman, and I could run that company better than whatever CEO they have in there right now.

They should remake NOLF.

Maybe 2K games is up for it after all Darkness 2 came from them.

Man, I loved playing Blood.

I hope the Blood source code will be released some day.
