Survey points to Legacy of Kain revival

Which name do you like?

An online survey has hinted that Square Enix may be considering a revival of the Legacy of Kain series.

A GameRevolution reader claims to have undertaken a survey that asks for opinions on various names for a potential Legacy of Kain game.

"The four names were Obsidian Blood, Obsidian Sun, Dead Sun, and Revenant," said reader "daverabbit".

"They also asked if the names sounded good alone or tagged with any of the Legacy of Kain/Soul Reaver/Blood Omen names used previously."

The Legacy of Kain series won critical and commercial success for its storytelling and unique visuals.

The first game, Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain, launched on PSOne in 1997. It was developed by Too Human maker Silicon Knights.

After a legal tussle Tomb Raider creator Crystal Dynamics made subsequent sequels with stories penned by Uncharted scribe Amy Hennig.

The fifth game in the series, Legacy of Kain: Defiance, launched in 2004 on the PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox. We haven't heard from the series since.
