Details are sketchy and nothing is confirmed, but here it is.
Personally, I haven't had such a negative reaction to the idea of a reboot since Dante's new look. Soul Reaver
is one of my favourite games of all time, and it will take a lot to convince me that a reboot would be worthwhile. Especially galling is the fact that story was very important to the Legacy of Kain
series, with a long and complex arc spanning several games, which, and this is the important part, they never actually finished
. We were left hanging at the end of Defiance. Something terrible had happened, but for the first time in the series, everyone seemed to know what they had to do. Why reboot this when I think most long-time fans would prefer a conclusion?
Also of concern is the fact that Amy Hennig, a key creative force behind the games, is no longer working for Crystal Dynamics. She will be a tough act to follow. There's also the question of the voice talent for the games, which in my opinion is some of the best out there. At the very least I would hope that Michael Bell and Simon Templeman reprise their roles as Raziel and Kain, but Tony Jay
, the voice of another key character, is no longer with us, and he too will be difficult to replace.
Anyone else got any thoughts on this?

I love it when a plan comes together, Clarice.
