A post on the Oddworld Inhabitants Facebook page has revealed that PSone platformer Oddworld: Abe's Odyssee will be re-released next summer

"OK so here's the skinny on "Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee..." it reads.

"We decided to reboot it, not just an HD update to the original PS1 title, this is a NEW game. It will be getting its first public showing LATER this year, with a release date of NEXT summer (2013)."

So not just an HD update but a new game altogether? The developer later attempted to clarify its comments.

"To extra clarify, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee HD, it is a remake of the original PS1 title, however we have started it from scratch using the original as a blueprint....OK?"
