Following the speculation that development is under way for another Legacy of Kain action-adventure game, Square-Enix’s Community Manager George Kelion has shed some light on the matter in a statement sent to VG247.
Earlier in the year, information was exposed suggesting that we were to expect another title from this series. We saw references to “Nosgoth” in the AMD Catalyst 13.5 patch notes, a “Nosgoth” entry created in the steam database, and Square-Enix registering the domain name of “War of Nosgoth” back in February.
Kelion has put our curiosity at rest by confirming that “Nosgoth exists and is in active development” further informing us that “Nosgoth is set in the same universe as previous LoK games, but on a different branch to the Blood Omen and Soul Reaver series. The community should not be thinking of Nosgoth in terms of a single-player experience.”
Kelion also revealed, that “Nosgoth is not being developed by Crystal Dynamics” and that it “is not a traditional Legacy of Kain action-adventure game”. So despite this exposure possibly being announced earlier than planned, these two facts imply that we are not to expect more of the same. Everything is very much still all up in the air.
