Blood Revival Shelved

A post on The Postmortem has word from former Monolith CEO Jace Hall that hoa proposal to update the original version of Blood to work on modern PCs and other operating systems has been quashed by rights-holder Atari (thanks Polygon). Here's word on the fate of the old-school shooter:

Dear Blood Community:

I just got an unusually short, one sentence e-mail from Atari, letting me know that given the current set of circumstances, they are choosing to decline to proceed.

Obviously, I am disappointed. Particularly given Atari's continued encouragement along with the amount of time, effort and correspondence that I have put into this venture.

The only thing that can be done at this point is to wait and see what happens with ATARI, and hope that they find themselves in a position and mindset to allow my efforts to continue on this matter at a future date.

Tears and Sadness, Jace Hall
