War for Nosgoth reference sparks Legacy of Kain reboot speculation


A reference to "War for Nosgoth" in a new AMD patch log has sparked speculation that Square Enix will soon announce its oft-rumoured Legacy of Kain reboot.

Both Nosgoth and War for Nosgoth were found in AMD driver files by Eidos forum user Corlagon, and, as fans will know, Nosgoth is the world in which the Legacy of Kain series is set.

Backing up the new report, Nosgoth was spotted in the Steam Database, and in February this year Superannuation spotted that Square Enix had registered the warfornosgoth.com domain.

Of course, the reference to Nosgoth in the AMD driver patch log does not guarantee any new game in the much-loved series will release, but it does look like one was in development at some point. With E3 right around the corner, hopefully we'll find out soon enough.

A Square Enix spokesperson told Eurogamer: "Square Enix does not comment on rumour and speculation."
