Couldn't have said it better myself.

This needs to happen.

Silicon Knights hasn't owned the LoK IP for over a decade. They sold it to Crystal Dynamics, and I believe it now belongs to Square-Enix.

More to the point "returning to its roots", for Silicon Knights, would mean a return to fantasy conquest style games, NOT Legacy of Kain. The first (and only one by Silicon Knights) LoK game was about midway through Silicon Knight's life cycle as a dev -- its not one of its "roots" at all.

I wish it was true, but Silicon Knights haven't owned the rights to the series since 1997.

I can't believe this series hasnt been revived yet

I'd rather Crystal Dynamics make it if it was going to be made, I don't see it happening though.

I don't think SK has put anything good out since the first Blood Omen and that game didn't play anything like the rest of them.

Pozzle2452d ago

I'd rather Naughty Dog make it if it's going to be made. Amy Hennig is a big reason why the series' is so amazing, and we've already seen what happens when someone else tries to write a LoK game (Blood Omen 2).

Well yea I'd prefer that over all else but I thinks it's pretty much guaranteed that will never happen, at least CD has a chance as SE own them and the rights to the LoK series.
