No platforms or release window have been announced, but we expect to hear more details when E3 rolls around next week.

Shadow Warrior was a tongue-in-cheek remake of 3D Realms' 1997 first-person shooter of the same name. Developed by Flying Wild Hog, it quickly became a cult favourite, migrating from a PC-exclusive in 2013 to a multiplatform console affair on PS4 and Xbox One in 2014.

Former Eurogamer editor Tom Bramwell had a rollicking good time with it. "As a smarter-than-it-looks nostalgia trip, then, Shadow Warrior delivers, and as long as you keep that in mind - and consume it in moderation - it's an easy recommendation," he stated in his Shadow Warrior review.
