SiN Remaster Plans

A post on Steam from remaster masters Nightdive Studios announces updates to SiN: Gold on Steam adding the Wages of SiN expansion along with a bunch of fixes. This is not all the news for Ritual Entertainment's 1998 first-person shooter, however, as PC Gamer says this is a prelude to a full remaster of the game. They don't have a ton of details on the plan, but this is expected late this year or in early 2021. Here's more:
Nightdive is working on a fully remastered version of Sin that will run on its Kex Engine, which is also used in games including Blood: Fresh Supply, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, and Forsaken Remastered. Expect the usual enhancements, like modern resolution support and a nice crisp UI. Nightdive didn't have a lot of details on the remaster to give us yet, but it's currently expected to be out in late 2020 or early 2021. The studio was able to dig up a pile of classic Sin art for us, so enjoy some overwhelmingly late '90s renders.

Speaking of NOLF, I really wonder why they didnt continue that series. It was very popular and objectively very well made games. Are the rights lost in the nirvana too?

NOLF 2 was an abysmal commericial failure, the cheap tie-in "Contract Jack" even more so.

The rights are probably with Warner. Nightdive came so close in aquiring the rights for the series, but they blew it by filing a NOLF trademark to force other potential rights owners to react. Warner did not respond well to extortion tactics and cancelled all talks and negotiations.

So ... every other studio might try it again, but not Nightdive.
