[Rumor] Crystal Dynamics Developing A ‘Soul Reaver’ Reboot
Crystal Dynamics is currently hard at work on its Tomb Raider reboot, but that isn’t all they’re working on, apparently. According to a report by VG247, the developer is working on a reboot of Soul Reaver, part of the Legacy of Kain franchise.
To be clear, the report indicates that this is not simply a remake of the original, nor is it an ‘HD-ified’ version of it. Citing an unnamed source, VG247 says that the new Soul Reaver game will be a full reworking, from gameplay all the way to art style. It isn’t clear if Raziel, Soul Reaver‘s protagonist, will be the main character in the reboot.
The source went on to say that the Soul Reaver reboot was originally intended to be revealed at some point this year, potentially as early as this year’s E3 in June. This appears to no longer be the case, according to the site’s sources, and there’s no word on when a reveal would take place.
The wording in the report seems to indicate that it isn’t clear whether or not this is an actual Soul Reaver reboot, or if it’s a Legacy of Kain reboot. As previously mentioned, it isn’t clear that Raziel will be starring in the game–Kain, the protagonist in the Legacy of Kain series, may be the game’s playable character.
