Molyneux talks up oldies

He'd love to redo Syndicate, etc.

Lionhead's Peter Molyneux would "love" to revisit the likes of Syndicate, Populous and Dungeon Keeper, but it's not something he can sort out on his own.

Engaging in a bit of navel-gazing ahead of his appearance at next week's Leipzig Games Convention, Molyneux told Gamespot, "Aside from the licensing complications, some sort of next-gen online version of Syndicate would certainly be popular with gamers..."

"I'd love to reprise games like Syndicate, Populous, and Dungeon Keeper, but as you point out, we'd need some business development people to sort this out," he added.

The rights to those three games - which Molyneux worked on during his time at Bullfrog - all rest with Electronic Arts, and while the veteran UK developer has worked with Electronic Arts recently on the Black & White games, with Lionhead now a member of the Microsoft Game Studios stable it's easy to see where difficulties might arise.

Plus of course he was just staring off at the stars, as we're all prone to do. Especially on grotty August mornings when there's bugger all to write about.
