Reports emerging this morning indicate that Crystal Dynamics is working on a full reboot of the vampire series, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.

VG247 has the scoop, suggesting that the game will be a “full reworking of the vampire action classic” with a new art direction.

The site notes that a reveal was previously planned for this year, but it has since learned that the information may not be accurate. With Crystal Dynamics still hard at work on Tomb Raider, a 2012 announcement doesn’t make much sense – but we suppose it depends how deep into development the project actually is.

The original Soul Reaver launched on the PlayStation back in 1999. A direct sequel was released on the PlayStation 2 in 2001, but the series has been dormant since the release of Legacy of Kain: Defiance back in 2003.

Would you be excited to see the Soul Reaver franchise return?
