Studios readying Next Gen games


Reports are surfacing this morning that both Obsidian and Crystal Dynamics are readying announcements for their Next Generation console games, with information most likely set for E3.

First up is news on Tomb Raider developer Crystal Dynamics, which has been long-rumoured as working on a reboot of Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver. Apparently the studio's lead principal artist Matt McCulloch posted in his LinkedIn profile that he's currently "creating wildly cool environments for a soon to be announced title for Crystal Dynamics."

Elsewhere on the profile were words saying he is "working closely with all disciplines to create unique, efficient and malleable levels. more on that to come." To back this up, the Crystal Dynamics career site calls for potential staff "to be part of creating the foundation for a brand new AAA game."

The studio is also thought to be working on a sequel to Tomb Raider. 

As for Obsidian, a new job listing for a level designer confirms the studio is working on a next-gen project, while also asking for "experience working on games with role playing elements." Obsidian's art director Rob Nesler also lists his work on an "unannounced Next-Gen Console title."

Could Fallout 4 be coming to the next gen? Mmm year of the '4'? Where did we hear that this morning?

If it doesn't turn out to be a Legacy of Kain game a lot of people are going to rage. As for Obsidian i'm hoping for a KOTOR 3 (Don't take this away from me)

If it's going to be a reboot it will most likely be Legacy of Kain: Blood Omen, just cos you can't have a Soul Reaver game without introducing Kain first

Obsidian won't be making the next Fallout game. They have their hand busy with KOTOR 3 [o_0;]

I really hope that a new Legacy of Kain game is in development :) The series have been dormant for too long.
