Missing in Action - The Legacy of Kain Series

PixlBit: Since Defiance’s release in 2003 there have been numerous rumblings about the series being resurrected, but all signs from the offices of Crystal Dynamics have indicated that nothing has been seriously considered at this time. That doesn’t mean that the series will remain dormant forever though, since the studio has recently brought Tomb Raider back from the dead and its parent company, Eidos, made a big splash by releasing a new Deus: Ex game to critical acclaim just last month.

So what would a new Legacy of Kain game focus on? The world of Nosgoth is filled with interesting possibilities so it is my hope that the developers don’t elect to reboot the series. A particular character in the Legacy of Kain family would certainly be well serviced by a game or two of their own. I am speaking of the one and only Vorador. (Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

That's actually a very good point. The original Deus Ex came out AGES ago, and Revolution is doing really well despite the series being all but forgotten about for years. Maybe there is hope for the Legacy of Kain series yet. I hope so. I'd love to see a new game sometime soon.

We can only hope.

To be fair, though, both Tomb Raider and Deus Ex were higher-profile titles than the Legacy of Kain games. Despite their enormous quality, Kain titles have always been very niche and undernoticed.

Was LoK really that niche though? The series definitely got less and less popular as the years went on, but SR1 and SR2 were pretty big when they first came out. (SR1 in particular. I remember it being touted as the "next Tomb Raider"). People might not remember the games nowadays, but I hope the devs consider the series big enough to continue.

One of my favorite series I hope will come back. This and Onimusha.

If they bring back Kain, i wonder if S.R will soon follow suit, be cool to see some awesome vampires in games, and no sparkling Piano playing picking the dull highschool chick type lol.

And gore..The others had it, so amp it up, I loved throwing spears and swords through fools.

One of the best game series story and character wise. Loved all the games, even the two Blood Omen ones that kinda stuck out after the release of Soul Reaver 1 & 2. Pity that the voice actor who played the Elder God died, he had an epic voice ;_;
