Is There A New Legacy of Kain In The Works?
It's been almost ten years since a release in the Legacy of Kain series and by the looks of things, another may be in the works according to Polygon.
The discovery comes as "Nosgoth" appeared on Steam's database along with "War for Nosgoth" on Eidos Games' forums being mentioned in patch logs for an AMD driver.
Superannuation found that the warfornosgoth.com domain was registered to Square Enix in February.
Another discovery of a music composer Kevin Rielp's LinkedIn profile mentioned "Nosgoth" for Square Enix and Psyonix in his work history.
A potential logo of the project is available on Steam Database.
Crystal Dynamic's Legacy of Kain series takes place in the world of Nosgoth, leading to speculations of a new entry within the series. There have been five titles released for starting with the Silicon Knights developed Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain follows series vampiric anti-hero seeking revenge against his murders and looking for a cure to his vampiric curse.
Silicon Knights would eventually lose the rights to Legacy of Kain and Crystal Dynamics would continue to develop games from then on with Eidos handling publishing.
The next two sequels, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2 would focus on series co-protagonists Raziel. Raziel was on a hunt to find and kill his creator Kain for betraying him.
Kain would return to the spotlight with Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen 2. Legacy of Kain: Defiance closed the series and made both Kain and Raziel playable characters.
Square Enix nor Eidos have yet to comment on any of the rumors though there's a chance E3 could bring information.
