Legacy of Kain Returning?

A tweet by supererogatory reveals a new domain registration for that the internet sleuth says was registered by Square Enix, though the registrar listed is "CSC Corporate Domains." Nosgoth is the setting of the Legacy of Kain games, so this becomes a hint that something new might be brewing for the action/adventure series. The last we heard about Legacy of Kain was a couple of years ago when clues surfaced suggesting Ritual Entertainment was working on a new installment in the series that was cancelled in 2004. Thanks VideoGamer.

Squeenix had a survey on possible names for a new Legacy of Kain (Obsidian Blood, Obsidian Sun, Dead Sun, and Revenant) but this was around the middle of last year.

The spread on like/dislike for different entries in this series has me a little boggled. I can understand holding the first one in high regard, but either a) completely discounting the rest or b) holding Soul Reaver (and it's block puzzles) above the other 3D installments is just weird. Standard gameplay? I don't recall other 3D platformers featuring regular travel to the spirit world for taking advantage of warping terrain, insubstantial water, paused time and abilities that didn't work in the physical world. Although, Defiance really dropped the ball on keeping the spectral realm relevant.

And no hate at all for Blood Omen 2? That was like, the example for how not to handle a sequel that generation. Metal Gear players who never got over Raidan may disagree, but Raidan was at least intentional.

That being said... No Crystal Dynamics, no interest. They made the Legacy/Soul Reaver series. I doubt anyone else can do it justice.

Kind of funny to think about how CrystalD stole the franchise from Silicon Knights after the first one and didn't use any of their pre-production for the sequel they were planning. There are people who swear to this day that Silicon Knights would've made the rest of the series a bazillion times more awesome, but I just think "Phew, dodged a bullet there" after Too Human and X-Men: Destiny.

Of course, Amy Hennig is long gone from there...
