Nosgoth in active development, not ‘traditional’ Legacy of Kain game
Square-Enix has confirmed to VG247 that Crystal Dynamics is not developing ‘Nosgoth’, but that the new project is linked to the Legacy of Kain franchise.
In a statement sent to VG247 this morning, Square-Enix community manager George Kelion confirmed that a studio is actively developing the title. He told us, “Nosgoth exists and is in active development, but is not a traditional Legacy of Kain action-adventure game”, and added: “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 explained that the reason for talking to us about the project was to clear the air following Nosgoth leaks that came from AMD and Steam.
The game will not be announced at E3, but Kelion added that Square is very excited about the concept.
“We don’t want people to get the wrong idea about Nosgoth following the AMD and Steam leaks ahead of its future official announcement,” he said. “Nosgoth is not being developed by Crystal Dynamics. Crystal Dynamics are not working on a Legacy of Kain game.
“This isn’t something we’d normally do, but we wanted to just give folks a bit more context for the direction, rather than just batten down the hatches.”
There you have it folks. What do you want to see from Nosgoth? Let us know below.
