Quantic Dream considers Omikron II

Developer struggles to make up its mind over sequel to The Nomad Soul.

French developer Quantic Dream has denied reports suggesting that Omikron II is currently in the design phase of development.

However, a representative did confirm that the title is "under discussion" as a potential project.

The original game, Omikron - The Nomad Soul, appeared on the Dreamcast and PC back in 1999 and sold more than 600,000 copies. It combined RPG, FPS, beat-'em-up and exploration elements with a story about demons nicking peoples' souls, and featured an overly-ambient soundtrack by David Bowie (who also appeared in the game).

The developer says it has not yet approached the Goblin King to see if he'd be interested in a sequel.
